LATN identifies and develops ideas aimed at bringing about change in Latin America through research on public policy and interaction with academics, negotiators and members of civil society. To accomplish this goal, the Network actively organizes events including conferences, workshops and working meetings. LATN deepens its links with associated institutions while at the same time disseminating a wide variety of publications.

Objectives of the intervention:

By enhancing the policy-relevance of research while using and strengthening LATN, the project will contribute to prepare Latin American countries for a meaningful participation in trade negotiations and a development-consistent insertion in the world trading system.

Why was OM chosen?

Outcome Mapping methodology in the elaboration of the proposals and the development of projects has been highly useful to define more precisely the following points:

- The audience that the project will be directly working with (Boundary Partners);
- The goals to be pursued (Outcome Challenges);
- The expected results (Progress Markers), particularly in terms of behavioral changes of the project’s partners; and
- The actions to be developed (Strategy Maps).

In terms of evalution, it allows assessing - on the one hand - the influence of the network’s activities on each group of boundary partners and - on the other hand - the completion of the outcome challenges outlined on the proposal of LATN 3.
