Ensuring quality of evidence generated through participatory
evaluation in humanitarian contexts
Method note #3 (ALNAP Discussion Series: Improving the quality of EHA evidence)
About this resource
Participatory evaluations are becoming ever more commonplace as a means of engaging with affected communities. As agencies move towards prioritising the input and feedback of those they hope to assist, these methods start featuring more prominently in how programmes are evaluated.
Nevertheless, questions often arise about the quality and credibility of evaluative evidence, such as whether evidence gathered using this type of evaluation approach is accurate and credible. This short EHA method note resumes the discussion in the ALNAP Humanitarian Evaluation (EHA) Community of Practice (CoP) around benefits of participatory evaluations, methods and approaches, and offers insights from CoP members around these questions.
