We are beginning the second stage of EvalParticipativa with a new activity plan that we will share soon. In the meantime we invite you to listen to the testimony of Juan Carlos Sanz, who represents DEval in the Coordinating Team of this regional initiative.
In this video (English subtitles) Juan highlights the particular features of participatory evaluation, such as the main role that the stakeholders play in analysing and assessing an intervention in which they themselves have been involved. He also emphasises the importance of thoroughness in participatory evaluation as this will provide credibility and will help to adopt the changes and improvements to the evaluated project. Lastly, he extends an invitation to join the Community for Practice and Learning EvalParticipativa so as to exchange lessons learnt and improve abilities in this evaluation approach.
Juan Carlos Sanz is an economist from the University of Valladolid, Spain.
He has coordinated development projects and projects on natural risk prevention in Latin America and Africa. He works in the German Institute for Development Evaluation (DEval), specifically in the project FOCELAC+, for Evaluation Capacity Development in Latin America.
