Outcome Mapping for the Latin American Trade Network Monitoring and Evaluating Research Outputs

Jorgelina Loza

Summary: Outcome Mapping is a methodology for planning, assessment and monitoring of projects promoted by IDRC. The Latin American Trade Network has incorporated this methodology gradually adapting its tools to its own features and procedures.
This methodology provides for a series of steps to the stage of planning and project definition, and data collection mechanisms and evaluation of outcomes that allow continuous monitoring and reflection. The data collection instruments, from their adaptation in a process that spanned different intensities, have become the main tool for monitoring and evaluation of the Network. Throughout that process, the instruments and steps that the proposed methodology postulates have been adapted to the possibilities and needs of LATN, positioning this regional network as a reference on the subject.
This book presents the experience of application of this methodology in LATN, and the ongoing process of adaptation. It also resumes the evaluation results from the application of OM during the third period of LATN, from 2003 until 2008.
We propose, from our experience, to consider the scope and possibilities of this methodology in the specific of research activities.
