The guidebook (pdf) “Toward Good Practice in Public Engagement: a participatory evalution guide for CSOs” (civil society organizations) is a publication by the Canadian Council for International Cooperation and was prepared by Michael Stephens.

From the guidebook: “It is hoped that this guidebook will:

  • help to demystify evaluation and provide tools to build capacity in participatory evaluation and action research,
  • strengthen organizational understanding about good practice in public engagement from a CSO perspective and
  • stimulate or reinforce a culture of reflection in CSOs regarding their social change philosophies and models for change.”
