The Bandungan Papers: Guidelines for the Evaluation of Rural Development Projects of NGOs. CENDHRRA Development Memo Number 4.
Ledesma, Antonio L., Ed.; Ledesma, Angelita Y., Ed.
A collection of papers, from the Centre for the Development of Human Resources in Rural Asia (CENDHRRA) Evaluation Seminar (1980) in Bandungan, Central Java, provides guidelines for evaluation of rural development projects of non-governmental organizations (NGOs). The first part of the report contains a summary of group discussions on different aspects of evaluation, including placement of development projects within broader national policies; evaluation purposes, objectives and procedures; utilization of evaluation results; and perspectives on specific aspects, such as profiles of rural projects, listing development indicators, and in-built evaluation through reporting systems. A section on recommendations to CENDHRRA concerns CENDHRRA's role in helping project evaluations. The second part contains five case studies of projects; summaries of two resource papers; and sections on incidental thoughts on evaluation, evaluation apprehensions, difficulties of evaluating NGO projects, and CENDHRRA's evaluation services. Case studies cover evaluation of a scholarship program for social leadership training (Indonesia); an in-built participative evaluation of the Usaha Bersama movement (people joining together in socioeconomic activity to achieve a certain objective) (Java); community-based integrated rural development (South Korea); a Merapi Slopes drinking water project (Indonesia); and the utilization of community health services (Philippines). Summarized resource papers discuss a system for project evaluation through reports and a community-level information statistics system. (MH)
