Participatory Evaluation

Training date
Registration deadline

Trust Consultancy and Development would like to offer a free webinar on « Participatory Evaluation » to give the opportunity to professionals working in the humanitarian and development sectors to expand their knowledge and strengthen their skills.

Traditionally, evaluation tended to be managed by an external evaluator and the stakeholders were more the object of the evaluation than participants. Over the past years, actively involving the stakeholders in the evaluation of a project has been seen more and more as critical. Because it has become a fundamental issue, this webinar will show how to open up participation during a regular evaluation and how to implement a participatory evaluation

For this workshop to be interactive, the number of participants will be limited to the first people who register.

Target Audience

This webinar is open to everybody who has an interest in the subject. No prior knowledge is required.

Learning Objectives

  • To understand why participation is necessary

  • To describe participatory tecniques within a regular evaluation

  • To give practical step-by-step orientation to produce a participatory evaluation
