Outcome Harvesting Evaluation of Social and Behavior Change Capacity Strengthening Activities in Nepal

In order to evaluate Breakthrough ACTION Nepal’s accomplishments over the implementation period (January 2018–March 2020), the team used a post-hoc, qualitative evaluation technique known as “Outcome Harvesting.”

Outcome Harvesting is a complexity-aware methodology that is particularly useful when evaluating capacity strengthening projects, considering their complex theories of change, as well as projects being implemented in settings characterized by uncertainty (such as Nepal, where changes to the federal system continue to keep the health system in flux). This is the report of the Outcome Harvesting qualitative evaluation.
