Decline, Mutation Or Metamorphosis? Prospects For Indigenous Evaluation
The purpose of this gLOCAL2023 presentation, organized by EvalForward and EvalIndigenous, is to advocate the need for Indigenous Evaluation to be an essential building block in developing national M&E systems and discrete evaluations; that is, as opposed to just ensuring donor-led and financed M&E are culturally appropriate and involve local, not necessarily indigenous, evaluators.
The session will be divided in two parts:
- First, an overview explaining Indigenous Evaluation and the work of EvalIndigenous;
- Second, a panel discussion on how well and to what extent are National Evaluation Systems and the "Made in Africa" Initiative are integrating the views, beliefs and practices of Indigenous evaluators.
Reference documents for this session include the 10 Questions indigenous communities should ask evaluators and the Indigenous African Ethical Protocol for Evaluations.
