Favourite picture from the Pastoral study

Prateek favourite photo from the pastoral study. This photo is something which I could relate to. We could point out before going to the field how pastoral woman's work does not find itself within the women and work discourse but it was after understanding the relationship of women with animals, we could understand the nature of "work" which a pastoral woman does. 



How a utilization focused approach helps to reflect and course correct

Dear Friends, 

Most of us know or have worked with projects and programs that adapt to changing circumstances in order to remain relevant and effective. Our work on gender issues is similar, ever changing and complex. As an evaluator, I have always been attracted to approaches that enable reflection about what is happening on the ground and helping those most affected by the program to be involved in course correction. 

So how does one do so, yet ensure that the evaluation is asking the right questions? One way is using the Utilization Focused Evaluation (UFE) approach. The approach outlines a series of steps to deliberately encourage users to ask key questions and identify the use of the evaluation findings during the process of evaluation. I have found UFE valuable because it is an evaluation approach that helps us make sense of changing environments.  My blog on Better Evaluation explains more 


I look forward to your comments and sharing of similar experiences.
