Building evidence

Background on the building evidence toolkit

In this section of our toolkit, we invite you to explore and learn about community-centered evidence. This is the foundation for how we think about evidence and documenting evidence.  In other words, this section includes the special ingredients for our meals. In our case, our special ingredients are community members and we strongly believe they should guide all that we do, including building evidence.   As you will learn by reading our special ingredients, this information has  emerged as result of a communal effort, with our colleagues sharing their recipes and tweaks- más o menos paprika, ajo, hoja de laurel– to enrich and expand our knowledge and expertise about documenting evidence from a community centered perspective.   We hope this information is helpful to you.
