This guide provides a brief and accessible overview of methods for impact evaluation in the context of development cooperation. It is targeted at practitioners in technical cooperation and focuses on hands on, low-cost impact evaluation that still provides the desired, sufficiently robust information and results. The guide specifically discusses employment effects brought about by two contexts of technical cooperation interventions, i) vocational education and labor markets, and ii) private sector development and business support. The main challenges facing the impact evaluation of an intervention of development cooperation are delineated, along with the principal methodological approaches to addressing these challenges. Several examples from both contexts illustrate how these approaches work in practice.
