Abstract

The purpose of this report is to set out a framework for evaluating the impact of the EPWP. The monitoring framework is provided in a separate document. It is important to highlight, at the outset, that the development of a monitoring and evaluation framework for the EPWP prior to its implementation represents best practice both internationally and within national government. The report provides a comprehensive and integrated approach to evaluating the impact of the EPWP on employment, poverty and service delivery. The research methodology included a review of domestic and international literature and close interactions with government departments tasked with implementing the various programmes that comprise the EPWP.
