Last year in Paris, Marc Tevini* and Kenza Bennani** and a chance to interview Donna Mertens about the transformative approach in evaluation, how to face the climate change issue, the dead angles in evaluation and the role of emerging evaluators.
Here's a glimpse of it :
▶ What matters in our work as evaluators is to raise up issues
▶ In a way that sheds light on the change needed in programs and policies
▶ There is rigorous scientific evidence that climate change is an issue
▶ A good evaluator should be critically reflective about such an oppressive issue
▶ We have to be ethical and honest about the values underpinning a program or policy
▶ We have to play the most important role of an evaluator, which is to ask provocative questions
Fell free to watch it, share and comment !
