Trialling the Theory of Change approach to impact evaluation in conservation using the Saiga Conservation Alliance’s work in Uzbekistan as a case study

Kirsty Simkin

There is a need for high quality impact evaluation in conservation biology. In response to this need there is a growing body of work on how best to evaluate conservation interventions. However, often these methods are too time-consuming or resource-heavy for small NGOs to carry out. The Theory of Change approach has the potential to be a useful and feasible approach for small NGOs.
