Maximising the Use of Evaluation through Visual Thinking

EvaluVision is a methodology to improve the utilization of evaluation. It filters content, technical language, theories, and organises them into comprehensible graphics


Through visual thinking, EvaluVision encourages engagement from various level, management, programme, implementing partners, national and subnational officials, and communities.

It is an attempt at the World Food Programme to maximize the evaluation through visual thinking. It was designed and tested at workshops in Asia and the Pacific Region.
