The development of organic farming is nowadays seen as a possible solution to meet the different objectives of sustainable development. In the Camargue, South of France, environmental issues are strongly linked with agriculture, and stakeholders are in need of integrated approaches to analyse the plausible impacts of alternative farming systems at multiple scales, particularly at regional scal ...

This book also details challenges and goals in other realms of evaluation, including monitoring and evaluation (M&E), op ...

Abstract :

Can project evaluation methods be used to evaluate programs: complex interventions involving multiple activities? A program evaluation cannot be based simply on separate evaluations of its components if interactions between the activities are important. In this paper a measure is proposed, the total program effect (TPE), which is an extension of the average treatment effect on the treat ...
