Pablo Rodriguez Bilella

Pablo Rodriguez-Bilella is a consulting sociologist, with 15 years of progressively responsible positions in applied and academic social sciences: evaluation, planning, community participation, and programme management. Committed to practical approaches that emphasize sustainable development over charity, community participation over relief, and empowerment over dependency, yet realistic enough to understand the need for pragmatism.

Pablo has specialized in impact evaluation of rural development programmes in the context of quite significant transformations of the
rural landscape. Experienced in bridging evaluation research and policy by interdisciplinary work, and interested in linking issues of
relevance and applicability with high standards of evaluation quality. Skills include monitoring and evaluation, action research, public
consultation, participatory rural appraisal, sample surveys, case studies, project design and review; and pilot project implementation.

His professional work experience includes consulting work for the World Bank, Argentine Government, and the LENTISCO Network (Latin
America-European Network for Technology Innovation Studies and Co-Development, financed by the EU). In the past four years he has
been lecturing Evaluation Research Methods and supervising undergraduate and graduate students in evaluation topics.
