Abstract Describes the Healthy City projects underway in Chittagong & Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh, presenting findings of a stakeholder analysis in each city. These analyses were used to demonstrate to project staff the value of evaluations & to show how such evaluations can involve the stakeholders in identifying evaluation needs & tools. Discussed is the potential of this kind of analysis in evaluations of ongoing projects, especially to primary stakeholders. Also considered are why so few evaluations of Healthy City projects have been undertaken & why those involved in what they perceive to be successful projects often feel that evaluations are unnecessary. 4 Tables.
