“Following popular demand, the DCED is organising the second Global Seminar on results measurement in the field of private sector development (PSD), 24-26 March 2014 in Bangkok, Thailand. The Seminar is being organised in cooperation with the ILO and with financial support from the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO). It will have a similar format to the DCED Global Seminar in 2012, which was attended by 100 participants from 54 different organisations, field programmes and governments.

Since 2012, programmes and agencies have been adopting the DCED Standard for results measurement in increasing numbers; recently, several have published the reports of their DCED audit. This Seminar will explore what is currently known, and what we need to know; specifically, the 2014 Seminar is likely to be structured as follows:

  • An introduction to the DCED, its Results Measurement Working Group, the DCED Standard for results measurement and the Standard audit system
  • Insights from 10 programmes experienced with the Standard, based in Bangladesh, Cambodia, Fiji, Georgia, Kenya, Nepal, Nigeria and elsewhere (further details to come)
  • Perspectives from development agencies on results measurement
  • Cross cutting issues, such as the interface between the Standard and evaluation, measuring systemic change, and using results in decision-making
  • A review of the next steps in learning, guidance and experience around the Standard
  • Further opportunities for participants to meet each other, learn about each others’ programmes and make contacts for later follow-up

You are invited to join the Seminar as a participant. Download the registration form here, and send to Admin@Enterprise-Development.org. There is a fee of $600 for those accepted for participation, and all participants must pay their own travel, accommodation and insurance costs. Early registration is advised.”
