Initially, the CLARISSA programme used the River of Life (RoL) method in two evaluation analysis workshops which were facilitated by the fourth author. The Tdh MEL Manager, the first author, gained knowledge and skills of this method through engagement in the CLARISSA workshops. Subsequently, this learning was applied in project reviews and lesson learned events of three different projects of Tdh Nepal. The method was adapted in each application to meet the objectives of the workshop, while maintaining the core steps in each.
In this CLARISSA learning note, we reflect on our experiences of adopting and adapting the method in the different projects, and we share our practice learning for others who might be inspired to use this reflection method.
