As stated above using non-parametric multivariate statistics for assessments allows us to show the linkages between variables such as 'participation in meetings' and developmental indicators. We believe this is an important contribution to the development sector where 'processes' are emphasised but rarely scientifically assessed.

The techniques we have used are not unique and are regularly used in other sectors such as psychology and health care in the North. However, we believe that Gamos is one of the few organisations that has applied these planning and assessment tools to the development sector in the South.
