Over time reframing evaluation in our work to be more participatory and collaborative leads to higher levels of learning, strengthened community relations, and greater transparency.

In this paper, Pamela Teitelbaum explores the language, concepts, and basic understanding of evaluation approaches, and how they can help decision-makers discuss and identify the value of participatory and collaborative approaches to evaluation.
