Breakthrough ACTION Nepal Most Significant Change Evaluation Report
To explore changes in SBC capacity at the local, provincial, and federal levels where Breakthrough ACTION Nepal works, Breakthrough ACTION Nepal used the Most Significant Change (MSC) approach, a qualitative methodology involving key informant interviews with program staff and key collaborators. The MSC evaluation technique is well suited to evaluating complex settings where changes are not necessarily predefined or expected. This qualitative approach also offers the potential for organizational learning that can be used to inform future programmatic efforts.
Key informant interviews were conducted with stakeholders at the municipal, provincial, and federal levels in August, September, and October 2019. During these interviews, key informants were asked a set of open-ended questions to gather stories about changes they noticed or identified during the Breakthrough ACTION Nepal project. Breakthrough ACTION Nepal’s evaluation team collected 22 stories from four focal municipalities in Karnali province and from stakeholders at the provincial and federal levels.
Ten of those stories were vetted, scored, and selected as “most significant” by local stakeholders. Two MSC stories were selected from each of the four municipalities, and two MSC stories were selected from stakeholder interviews at the provincial level.
