Participative planning and evaluation skills are key elements in the process and management of community practice. This chapter emphasises the importance of evaluation in developing good community practice, and draws on two participative models — Achieving Better Community Development (ABCD) and Learning Evaluation and Planning (LEAP) — which can be applied to both the planning and evaluation stages of programmes or projects. It outlines the importance of involving relevant stakeholders in designing and implementing evaluation.
