A paper published by the Research, Evidence and Learning component of the Making All Voices Count programme sheds light on existing evidence about the Random Controlled Trials (RCTs) in the evaluation of social accountability tools in service delivery.

What other evaluation approaches would be more effective, more robust, given the particular characteristics of T&A programmes?
