Evaluation from the Perspective of a Local Expert: Edrulfo Rodriguez, EWB-USA | MEL Community of Practice

  •  May 12, 2022
     12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Edrulfo Rodriguez is the Nicaragua Country Coordinator for Engineers Without Borders-USA. In this open interview, we’ll ask Edrulfo, a local Nicaraguan, questions about his M&E experiences from rural Nicaragua to better understand his perspective on how evaluation can best meet the needs of local people and avoid colonial perspectives and approaches. Specific guiding questions of our conversation include:

  1. What has he found to be the most effective or useful with evaluation?
  2. What is the least effective or least useful? What is actively harmful?
  3. What recommendations would he have to evaluators working in the US that work with development organizations around the world?

Following our guided questions, we will open Q&A up to the group so others may ask Edrulfo their questions.
