This is an online event. 



Alison Jones 

Introduction to Appraisal & Evaluation with Prof Graeme Roy, Director, Fraser of Allander Institute 

Effective evaluation and appraisal are crucial elements of the project and programme development lifecycle and should form part of the development and planning of an intervention from the start. They help to inform how scarce public resources should be invested; assist in measuring the anticipated impacts and returns; and support the responsible and transparent management of these resources.

This course provides an accessible introduction into economic appraisal and evaluation, helping participants to understand key concepts, as well as recognising good practice and pitfalls.

The course assumes no formal training in economics but would ideally suit people working – or with some experience – in economic development or an economic policy environment.

The course takes place over a 3-week period.

  • Wednesday 24 February (10am – 12noon)
  • Wednesday 3 March (10am – 12noon)
  • Wednesday 10 March (10am – 12noon)
