2. ParticipatoryMethodologyapproach(I) The Citizen Action Secretary of Government of Catalonia wants to explore a new method to evaluate the CDP’s. We propose them working together with practitioners of the field. In 2008, we started up a project that focused in a participatory approach with community technicians of CDP. These practitioners carry out the management; design; implementation and evaluation of CDP in each community.
First action: A documental review to analyze semestral and annual memories evaluations of 55 CDP’s. This work allows us to propose an initial set of indicators of evaluation with the team. The set of indicators of evaluation was worked and reelaborated trough the experiences and opinions of community technicians. ParticipatoryMethodologyapproach(II)
