In advocacy work, it can be impossible to show cause-and-effect between programs and outcomes. In such cases, ԃontribution AnalysisԠis a useful approach. The method focuses on contribution, rather than attribution. It shows whether a credible case can be made that an intervention (or advocacy effort) contributed to certain outcomes (such as policy changes). The six-step process includes familiar theory of change construction, but adds less-conventional steps to test that theory. The material and the steps decribed can be used for self-studies.
