The Erasmus+ project “KA2- Cooperation for innovation and exchange of good practices” enters its final stretch with the sharing of the progress made by the teams of each country, as well as the update of its results in a meeting held in Lisbon (Portugal). The meeting was attended by representatives of universities and NGOs from the five participating countries (Portugal, Spain, Turkey, Colombia and Brazil).
In addition, the research carried out by the partners has been brought together and the complete information for the book that will gather the final data extracted from the project and will be published in the second half of the year. The document will serve as a basis for future training pathways structured around this methodology of social intervention, participatory evaluation.
The head of International Cooperation Projects at Fundación Magtel, Rocío Ciero and the Projects Technician of the entity, Ana Roldán have explained the practical application of participatory evaluation, using as an example the emergency humanitarian crisis that resulted from the eruption of the Cumbre Vieja volcano on La Palma.
Secondly, the Foundation’s speakers argued that there is a need to generate several training plans for technicians and workers in the third sector, using participatory evaluation tools, with the aim of implementing this methodology in Spanish NGOs in order to tackle humanitarian response interventions.
In this way, the Spanish team, formed by Fundación Magtel and Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia (UNED) has made progress in research on humanitarian intervention in Spain and the application of participatory evaluation as an innovative methodology in our country. This work on the development of joint online training actions will be completed in 2023.
