        The Evaluation Centre for Complex Health Interventions at the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute, St. Michael's Hospital held another workshop in a series focused on building evaluation capacity within Ontario on March 6, 2013. Led by Dr. Abhijit Das from the Centre for Health and Social Justice in India, this workshop focus was on evaluation’s role in improving lives, and argued that we need to move from selling best practice solutions to solving real world problems on the ground. Drawing from his experiences on the ground, Dr. Das explored how the local context can be incorporated into views of performance and how evaluation systems can make a difference to equity. Key Questions of the Workshop: • How do we ensure results-based thinking can transform peoples’ lived realities? • What are the roles of community and individual rights in defining views of development? • How do we move beyond globalized views of development and reframe development from a local and community lens? • How do evaluation systems incorporate local context in their definitions of performance? • What should go into a progressive view of performance and evaluation?
