Date: 30 March -3 April 2009
Venue: Cairo, Egypt
“After four very successful conferences over the past few years (held twice in Nairobi, in Cape Town and in Niamey), AfrEA wishes to announce that its Fifth Conference will be an international event hosted in partnership with NONIE (www.worldbank.org/ieg/nonie) and 3ie (www.3ieimpact.org).
…the AfrEA-NONIE-3ie International Conference on Impact Evaluation for Development Effectiveness, which will be held on 30 March-3 April 2009 in Cairo, Egypt. This is the first time an AfrEA event will be held in North Africa.
The conference promises to be an exciting event, with many renowned evaluators from across the world engaged in a variety of interesting and challenging sessions on this topic. As usual it will be preceded by a number of 1-2 day workshops by international and African evaluation experts to develop local capacities in impact evaluation.
Evaluators from developing countries will have access to financial support through a number of travel grants that will be allocated on a competitive basis.
Detailed information will be made available shortly on the conference website (under construction). We look forward to seeing you in the fascinating city of Cairo!
