The purpose of this paper is to share a reflection on some recent experiences carried out in the field of the evaluation of development projects. These refer mainly to projects supported by Northern NGOs and implemented by indigenous organizations in the Andean countries. The reflection topics will address the socio-organizational, cultural, and political aspects,which are involved in the relationship between donors and recipients and its implication for the evaluation of the projects. However, before going into the matter, I consider it necessary to offer a brief general characterization of the evaluation practice and of the socio-political context in which the indigenous populations are immersed in order to put this reflection in context.
