Integrating Gender in the Monitoring and Evaluation of Health Programs: A Toolkit

Participatory Program Evaluation Manual

Involving Program Stakeholders in the Evaluation Process

The participatory evaluation methodology developed by Judi Aubel and laid out clearly in this manual has been utilized by several evaluation facilitators with good results. Participants have learned new monitoring and evaluation skills, and been challenged to examine ways of doing things to see if there might be a better way. They have been encouraged to think creatively and be innovative problem solvers. Stakeholders at all levels have been empowered to speak out and share their concerns and their ideas.

Case Study: Exploring Developmental Evaluation

International Development programs often face significant challenges when confronted with complex and rapidly changing conditions that do not neatly fit within traditional models of evaluation. Developmental Evaluation (DE) has emerged in recent years as an alternative approach, seeking to create structured feedback mechanisms that can effectively support innovation. This document describes two DE experiences in International Development projects.
