This March 30, 2017 webinar featured an expert panel that discussed the challenges of evaluating capacity strengthening, what makes the outcome harvesting methodology unique and how outcome harvesting addresses some of the challenges of capacity strengthening evaluation. In 2013, USAID named outcome harvesting as one of several innovative complexity-aware monitoring methods. The Health Communication Capacity Collaborative (HC3) has used outcome harvesting to evaluate capacity strengthening programs for improved social and behavior change communication.
