The Evaluation Exercise

Approach

The evaluation process strategized to facilitate internal reflections and bring together key stakeholders so as to take stock of RCE Goa’s activities, its challenges and constraints, and what can be done to overcome them. It thus,

  • generated contextual data for RCE Goa,

  • conducted an appreciative enquiry into RCE Goa activities/initiatives, and

  • used the insights of the analysis to strengthen RCE Goa activity-level


Contd
…Contd.

Detailed methodology

Reporting framework:

  • Impact Indicators

  • Successful partner/RCE work

  • Areas where RCE work would bring impact and perspective directions of work

    Battery of questions:

  • What according to you are fairly good indicators of success (for RCE Goa’s work)?

  • Please highlight a few activities/initiatives/programmes/projects that you have undertaken as an RCE Goa partner, and/or, in individual capacity (in your focus area of work).

  • What according to you is/should be the most important focus of work for RCE Goa? Where would you like to see changes/improvements?


Outcomes
Outcomes

  • Perspective directions work and impact areas

  • Awareness for the general public through websites, social media/blogs, and an e-newsletter

  • Empowerment and engagement of youth by focusing on programmes through lecture/workshop, art & craft and the performing arts medium

  • Work with rural communities on the issue of waste, resources and traditional livelihoods

  • Policy-driven research involving key local issues requiring attention and intervention

  • Development and pooling in of resources towards Information, Education and Communication material

  • Development and contribution towards curriculum incorporating key regional sustainability issues

  • Impact indicators

  • Recognition of RCE projects and outcomes

  • Increasing number of committed partners

  • Increasing activity level

  • Engagement with key stakeholders in the identified thrust areas

  • Increasing media partners

  • Ability to leverage funds

  • Qualitative and quantitative impacts of RCE interventions


Learning and follow ups
Learning and follow ups…

Challenges of inactive partners and funding availability:

  • All partners should be willing to commit themselves so as to create a pool of dedicated and committed partners

  • Need to bring in a stronger sense of ownership and belonging amongst partners

  • Due to lack of funding, only on going activities can be showcased under the RCE Goa banner, this again limits all partners coming on board with equal commitment levels


Experience sharing
Experience Sharing…

All RCEs to share their experiences on the evaluation process they just underwent

  • RCE-GWS

  • RCE-Delhi

  • RCE-Pune

  • RCEs in Kenya

  • How do you think the RCE can benefit from it?

  • What does it entail for the region in which the RCE operates?

  • What are the main elements of the exercise that ensure it to be a valuable M&E tool?

  • How would you like to design, streamline and structure the evaluation exercise?

  • Please detail out the approach, methodology and stakeholders.


Summary points
Summary Points

  • Continue to pursue evaluation of RCEs that would like to undergo the process along the appreciative inquiry lines (RCE Bangalore, RCE Western Jalisco and a few RCEs in Africa).

  • Collect case studies/different methodological approaches towards RCE Evaluation and Assessment

    • As a stand alone exercise OR

    • Inbuilt into ongoing RCE activities OR

    • Reporting frameworks
