This document summarizes the online discussion held during the months of November and early December 2006 as part of the SDC Value Chains in Rural Development Community of Practice. Since December 2004, the online community of practice on value chains in rural development has discussed experiences and elaborated on new ideas of priority issues regarding interventions from donor agencies in value chain development. During the previous eight thematic discussion cycles, we focused on specific and relevant issues in VC development; this last debate cycle focuses on 'How to measure, assess and evaluate donor interventions in VC development?'

It covers:
- Who will use the information? How? When? What for?
- What are the main evaluation questions? What kind of impact,outcome or result do we want to assess?
- Where can we access data? What sources of information do we include?
- Time frame and costs? Periodical, continuous or one-time evaluation?
- Who will conduct and manage the assessment? Who will participate?
- What evaluation / assessment methods are appropriate?
