La presente evaluación del Proyecto “Promoviendo el Fortalecimiento de Pueblos Indígenas para la Gestión de Recursos Naturales en Perú, Ecuador y Bolivia” – PIAR, se efectuó en torno a la dinámica de los procesos que se ejecutaron, a la forma en que las variables interactuaron entre sí y al modo en que influenciaron los factores internos y externos.

Es decir, los efectos que devienen de la conjugación de los resultados directos de la acción, más otras dinámicas o limitaciones del medio en que se desarrolla la acción y 3) los cambios en la calidad y modo de vida de las personas, de los grupos sociales, de las comunidades.
