This chapter discusses the evaluation of projects and programs from a perspective of the project cycle and the policy cycle; we have problems that emerge in society, groups that identify these problems, and then we try to define policies to deal with these problems. Once the policy is implemented, targets and goals are determined against which the policy is evaluated. It is important to be able to adjust the policy or project as you go along rather than to execute it exactly as it was laid out. The first stage of the process is the identification and preparation phase, which calls for an initial evaluation of the situation. Once you have reviewed the feasibility of the project, a preliminary evaluation of the project will be done. During implementation, information will be collected, analyzed, and monitored. After the project, an ex-post evaluation is carried out in which there’s a revision that is done to see whether the project will be continued or re-vamped. This is applied to REDD+.
