Whilst the EITI has achieved significant momentum and considerable progress in implementation, recent reviews and evaluations have questioned its impact on governance, corruption, poverty reduction, and other objectives set out in the EITI's Articles of Association.
The EITI Board has accepted the need to improve approaches to measuring impact - both to maintain the credibility of the initiative and to learn lessons for future implementation. The overall aim of this assignment is to elaborate and pilot a flexible scheme on how to measure attributable change in terms of both positive and negative, intended and unintended impacts to national EITI processes - an Impact Evaluation Scheme IES.
To provide technical support to the design of the impact evaluation, including contributions to the theoretical and methodological debate surrounding impact evaluation of this kind. In particular, the EITI scheme presents a number of challenges given that it operates at a national-level; and so it is not possible to compare actual results with a 'counterfactual' i. The evaluation takes a theory-based approach, and adapts a 'contribution analysis' methodology to assess how much any given intervention 'caused' a particular 'effect'.
