RE: The pervasive power of western evaluation culture: how and in what ways do you wrestle with ensuring evaluation is culturally appropriate and beneficial to those who legitimise development aid? | Eval Forward

I fully agree with Ram's contribution. As opposed to the traditional concept and methodology of evaluation as a tool that collects and categorises information and obtains results, the evaluator must understand the local context and culture. This may lead to different findings and conclusions.

In other words, the evaluation must structure and shape the different situations it captures and analyses. And, automatically, the universe determines and consolidates the spirit of life of any culture in the world.
