Leaving a footprint: Stories of evaluations that made a difference
MetadataShow full item record
This book compiles seven evaluation stories in development contexts, which in a diversified and innovative manner, produced positive effects in the place in which they took place. Scattered all over Latin America and the Caribbean, these narratives cover evaluation of interventions that worked with children, rural young people, indigenous women, health programmes and university self-evaluation. Through surprising and entertaining narratives, these stories identify the factors that allowed evaluation to enhance local development. This book will be of great use for social programmes’ managers and technicians, as well as academic, evaluators and for the public in general who are interested in processes where social change is enhanced by evaluation.It is the result of the research project "Evaluation of Public Policies in Argentina and Latin America: Analysis of the Facilitating Factors of its Demand, Use and Adoption of Results", carried out by the PETAS (Programa de Estudios del Trabajo, el Ambiente y la Sociedad), Instituto de Investigaciones Socioeconómicas, Facultad de Ciencias Sociales, Universidad Nacional de San Juan, Argentina.
