This book shows how to create and put into place successful evidence-based strategies that will increase economic impacts and enhance the programme-management process. Each important step in the process of designing an effective evidence-based strategy is explained and examined, with a particular focus on the work that should be done in advance of implementation, before resources are spent. Information is provided on defining objectives, identifying options, assessing expected impacts, using assessment results, implementing strategies and developing information systems. The main principles and techniques, as well as typical problems and how to overcome them, are discussed.
