Policymakers concerned about achieving desired policy outcomes usually pay attention to assessing policies and programmes as they seek to determine which works. Such policymakers may also be interested in identifying which programmes work and provide the best value for money. Thus, evaluation is essential to policy implementation improvement and success. Successful policymaking involves the active engagement of stakeholders to harness their views and get them to play roles required for policy success. This calls for policy dialogue, participation in policy monitoring, and evidence to support the policy process. Policy engagement is essential to achieve political feasibility. Thus, evaluation is at the heart of linking scientifc analysis to policy formulation and outcome.
