An evaluation of the ELDP programme was undertaken by Centre for Budget and Policy Studies (CBPS) Bangalore. The main objective of this evaluation study was to examine the process of development of an ELDF; to examine whether processes, methods used, facilitation, content and design are in alignment with the objectives of the programme; to examine whether the programme has achieved its objective of preparing effective ELDFs; whether the outputs of the training are in alignment with objectives; and the reasons contributing to success and shortfall if any. The evaluation study included analysis of content covered and methods used, sample observations of training sessions, interviews of ELDP participants (treatment group) to understand the impact of the programme and matching non-participants (control group) for comparing levels of knowledge, attitude and perspective about practice between the two groups.
