Indicators for CBR programmes

DEEPAK, Sunil

Expand view

This paper explores how to improve the use of indicators to more effectively compare CBR programmes at national and international levels. It is noted that there is a wide variation in the indicators used by CBR programmes in different countries and even amongst different projects in the same country which makes it difficult to compare the effectiveness of programmes. The paper presents the indicator results of participants' discussions when divided into two groups to analyse the possible indicators for CBR programmes - one group focused upon the major participants of CBR programmes and the second group focused upon different sectors involved in CBR programmes.  It recommends that the indicators identified need to be field tested to gauge their effectiveness. This paper would be useful for anyone involved in the preparation, delivery or evaluation of CBR programmes
