The Evaluation sub-group seeks to answer the question How do we capture the impact of CLD? 

The Evaluation sub-group adapted an existing USAID tool to create the Quality Appraisal Tool to enable organizations to create rigorous, good quality evaluations, irrespective of the method of evaluation. This tool will be released soon. 

A section of the sub-group is also undertaking a realist review under the guidance of Prof Gill Westhorp (University of Charles Darwin, Australia) to understand how, why and under what circumstances facilitation and community leadership lead to improved resilience and equity, and thereby better food security.
