The Nova Scotia Chapter of the Canadian Evaluation Society invites you to join us for the half-day workshop: Understanding and using contribution analysis, presented by Dr. Kaireen Chaytor of Chaytor Consulting.

Contribution analysis is an approach to evaluation, built on theory of change, which demonstrates the desired impact of an intervention. Contribution analysis is especially relevant in settings where there are multiple interventions contributing to a social problem. The workshop will discuss the theory of contribution analysis and briefly review the literature. The workshop will build on participants’ knowledge and experience with theories of change to ensure you have the basis to proceed with contribution analysis. We will review the steps necessary to develop and implement contribution analysis. The benefits and challenges in applying contribution analysis will be discussed.

Time: 1:00pm-4:00pm , registration starts at 12:30pm.
