After chatting with folks from EvalYouth about the Global Mentoring Program, they suggested a series of podcast episodes on what evaluation looks like around the world.
This episode is one in which I chat with evaluators from Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) about what evaluation looks like in their region. I chat with Claudia Olavarría and Gerardo Sánchez-Romero about evaluation in the LAC region. They are the co-chairs of EvalYouth LAC, which you can contact via Twitter, Facebook, or email via [email protected].
We discuss a variety of topics, including how they define evaluation, stakeholder involvement, the governmental contexts they work in (e.g., CONEVAL, Mideplan), the purpose of doing evaluation, evaluation designs, evaluation standards (Estándares de Evaluación para América Latina y el Caribe), Evaluación Participativa, training and education in evaluation, professionalization, Eval4Action, the SDG 2030 Agenda, Evaluation without Borders, Blue Marble evaluation, and more.
