The Client Oriented Agricultural Research and
Dissemination (COARD) Project initiated series of activities
as part of the monitoring and evaluation strategy for
the supported projects. This volume provides guidelines
for conducting ex-ante participatory impact assessment
both by implementers and beneficiaries of a given project.
This booklet/guidelines is accompanied by a video clip
illustrating the process.
The guidelines are generic in nature and can be used by a
wide spectrum of development practitioners. We discourage
a "standard cook book" approach to this exercise
hence the use of Guidelines instead of a Checklist.
