Baseline studies are important for NGOs to do because they are part of best practice in project cycle management. They can help project workers to better understand beneficiaries’ situations and to demonstrate the transparency and the impact of the project. They can also be used for advocacy on behalf of the beneficiaries and are increasingly important for obtaining funding from donors. 

Baseline research involves gathering information on the achievement of project outputs, outcomes and objectives at least twice to measure the impact of a project. 

This toolkit is a step by step guide to help the development worker through the baseline research process. The toolkit and this baseline research process are split into three broad parts: 

1. Developing baseline indicators and questions
2. Conducting the baseline research
3. Analysing and reporting the results

The toolkit also contains several templates, lists and examples which the development worker can use for each stage of the process.
