This paper has been prepared for presentation at the first workshop for the research team involved in the NICK Project conducted three months after the start of the project. One of the main reasons why the team got the grant for this from the DFID_ESRC Joint Scheme is because they agreed to carry out a rigorous impact evaluation. In order to do this team members need to understand what is meant by an impact evaluation, and to decide on clearly defined measures of outcome and precise protocols for their measurement. In addition, this paper will consider some possibilities for routine monitoring.
