CONTRIBUTION TRACING VLOG SERIES: Unpacking your causal mechanism

VLOG 3 OF 5: UNPACKING YOUR CAUSAL MECHANISM

This is the third Vlog in the Contribution Tracing series. Don't worry if you missed the other Vlogs, but you might want to watch them first. Check out the first Vlog on 'What is Contribution Tracing?' and the second Vlog on 'Developing a testable contribution claim'. 

In this week's edition, Francisca Agyekum-Boateng, delves into the topic of 'unpacking your causal mechanism'. Francisca explains what a causal mechanism is and how to clearly develop a mechanism, based on a specific claim.

VLOG 1 of 5: What is Contribution Tracing?

Welcome to the first Vlog in a new series focusing on Contribution Tracing - a new approach to impact evaluation.

Over the coming weeks, we will publish 5 short videos that seek to introduce you to Contribution Tracing and some of its key aspects. All of the videos are presented by staff from CARE International in Ghana. You can read more about Pamoja's learning partnership with CARE here.

In this first video Mohammed Nurudeen Salifu answers the question: what is Contribution Tracing?
