Delegations from 8 countries participate in a regional workshop on monitoring and evaluation

PANAMA CITY, Panama, 20 October 2015 – The American Red Cross has brought together regional monitoring and evaluation specialists and country coordinators of the RITA (Resilience in the Americas) project from eight countries to participate in the Workshop “Mid-Term Evaluation, RITA project”. The Workshop is part of the mid-term evaluation that looks to identify successes of the RITA project to date, analyze the ways in which leadership and engagement can be evaluated, while also underlining potential areas for improvement.

Roberto Brito de la Cuesta, Regional Representative for Latin America, highlightes: “At the American Red Cross, we have a lot of expectations for the RITA evaluation. We expect to define the achievements we have had over the past three years of hard work and how these impact the key actors of the program. These will aid us in understanding what we have done well, actions that we should not replicate, but most of all, we are here to celebrate our successes and thank our main partners in the region.”

Workshop participants are learning about the different tools and methodologies that are being implemented as part of the evaluation process and are trained in their application. More importantly, however, this is an opportunity for evaluators and the American Red Cross to receive valuable feedback from local coordinators, who are providing the regional team with the vision and opinions from the local perspective. Coordinators from Belize, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Panama and Peru joined this week´s workshop.

“This workshop is an amazing opportunity for the Red Cross in the region to realize how much they have accomplished over the last few years. Now is the time for them to document this progress and share it with other community-focused organizations, make the case for enhancing community leadership and work together to tackle more complex issues.” – says Gavin White, Senior Delegate, Quality and Learning Unit.

The RITA project began three years ago and focuses on building resilience by involving local communities and their perspectives. RITA is the product of a baseline community assessment and is implemented by National Societies in 13 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.
