Needs Assessment for Participatory Evaluation of Environmental Education Programs
Traditional evaluation methods have been deemed ineffective for evaluating environmental education (EE) programs. In contrast, ongoing, participatory evaluation involving local stakeholders in problem identification, evaluation design, data collection, analysis, and use of results was found to provide improved and more useful results. This article describes a case in which participatory evaluation was implemented at the Wildlife Clubs of Kenya, the largest grassroots environmental education organization for youth in Africa.
