Designing and planning a portfolio strategy evaluation:
GIA worked with a major foundation to design and plan for an evaluation of its family planning strategy. The evaluation design focused on understanding what within the strategy is working (or not), as well as some of the reasons why a particular element is (or is not) working. To support the evaluation design, the team interviewed key stakeholders, engaged with the foundation program officers, and identified evaluation questions to be addressed. The team then developed an evaluation matrix and assembled a work-plan to conduct the evaluation activities.
