Qualitative approaches: Focus on the quality of an activity (often feelings and subjective opinions) as opposed to quantity (objective facts and figures).
Consultative approaches: Invite people to share their experiences through some kind of formal and structured process.
Outcome Evaluations: Assess the extent to which a programme, policy or intervention has achieved its planned outcomes.
Impact Evaluations: Explore and assess longer-term effects, intended or otherwise, of a programme, policy or intervention.
