    What this conference is about

    This two-day conference focuses on how those active in monitoring and evaluation (M&E) can contribute better to partnerships in development. Key questions to be explored include:

    1. What kinds of partnerships exist that could benefit from the support of M&E processes?
    2. How can M&E strengthen these partnerships for sustainable development?
    3. What is specific about the M&E within different kinds of partnerships, as compared to other implementation forms?


    The conference will connect the realities of those working in practice with ideas from people who are thought leaders on the partnership topic. Workshops, clinics and presentations will ensure a lively and thoughtful opportunity to question one’s own practice and find inspiration for new ideas.


    Contributions are being developed for the conference. Please also get in touch with ideas for specific contributions – papers, panels, roundtables or workshops are all welcome.  See 'call for proposals' under 'documents' on the right hand side.

    Palmer House Hilton Chicago, Illinois, USA

    "Unquestionably, the continuing disproportionate inequities confronting traditionally disenfranchised communities in education, poverty, health care, and rates of incarceration must remain a primary focus of our collective effort as a global CREA community. It is also critically important that we substantively incorporate the unique assets of our culturally diverse communities in evaluations and assessments to address the inequities facing these communities. We are compelled and responsible for raising questions about what is being done to address the problems by aggressively developing, implementing and advocating approaches that contribute to solutions.


    ? Broadening participation in STEM and beyond

    ? Capacity building in global and local communities and neighborhoods

    ? Development of equitable measures, methods and metrics

    ? Policies and practices of influence and consequence

    ? Examples of effective models of collaborations and networks

    The 2016 CREA conference issues a call for papers that demonstrate the kinds of interventions in education, health care, criminal justice, and social services that are being undertaken to address inequities. What has been attempted? What are the results? What works for whom, why, and in what circumstances?

    Proposals are invited that address one or more of the following:

    1. Reports of interventions/programs—We invite papers that describe interventions/programs that addressed a particular type of inequity that also includes discussions of outcomes and impacts in education, poverty, health care, and in other social sectors.

    2. Development of an evidence base— We invite papers that discuss new waves of thinking about evidence of effectiveness, program impact, and interventions that target people of color including indigenous communities. To determine whether interventions/programs are successfully addressing social, health and educational inequities, we need robust evidence base not simply for purposes of problem diagnosis but also to determine the effectiveness of remedies. .

    3. Theory of change— We invite papers that explore the plausibility and testability of various theories of change that address inequities in specific, local circumstances, that is, theories of cause and effect that attribute change to intervention/program's strategies and action. The focus is on how theoretical and applied research (i.e. practitioners) explain individual, intergroup, and social/ systemic change occurs, specifically how, their actions will produce positive results.

    4. Instrumentation—We invite papers that address the development of measures and indicators that contribute to improved understanding of teaching and learning processes, especially measures and indicators that capture changes resulting from interventions in the teaching and learning processes of
    underrepresented individuals and populations. Likewise, we invite papers that address similar issues of instrumentation in health, psychological and cultural assessment.

    Call for abstracts

    Contributions are invited on methods, practice and policy from civil society, government, academia and business, both in the UK and overseas. Structured abstracts for papers, symposiums, discussion panels and posters should cover:

    Theme 1:         The culture of evaluation and vice versa - practical experience of either building such a culture or evaluating cultural issues, what worked, why it worked and the pitfalls.

    Theme 2:         Unpacking complexity - how to analyse a situation and make it manageable, challenging assumptions, techniques for and experience of evaluating complex issues, learning from other disciplines.

    Theme 3:         Evaluation as a discipline - how to identify evaluators from different professional sectors and backgrounds and build communities of practice between and among them. What makes evaluators different and what value do they add?

    Theme 4:         Communication - spreading the word about evaluation, either to help develop a culture or to champion change as a result of evaluation findings. For example, through developing toolkits, exploiting the available technology, using social media, thinking out of the box.

    The closing date for receipt of abstracts for formal presentations is 13 November 2015 and for poster presentations is 11 April 2016.

  1. Monitoring and Evaluation is the key for change and development. The presence of a project or a program without monitoring and evaluation is not fruit full and cannot effectively and efficiently utilize the available resources for the project or program implementation or delivery. So, the development efforts on monitoring and evaluation is very crucial and important as it gives ways, mechanisms or systems in which the objective projects or programs. I am happy to be part of this association. I would like to thank the organizers for providing this learning and information sharing opportunity on monitoring and evaluation.

  24. This year Ministry of Economic Development and Polish Agency for Enterprise Development hosts 12th International Evaluation Conference “Evaluation that matters. Ways to improve public policies.” The event will take place in Wroc?aw 21st – 22nd June in Mercure Hotel at plac Dominika?ski 1. The aim of the conference is to present the results of public policies in the European Union. The evidence provided by the evaluation study not only illustrates the results of the actions taken, but also explains the socio-economic mechanisms, opportunities and barriers of the countries concerned.

    The conference is a forum for increasing knowledge and skills, exchanging experience and research results. Thanks to this event, specialists involved in the evaluation process at various stages have a great opportunity to meet, develop contacts and understand different points of view. We are confident that this will have a significant impact on the preparation of high-quality evaluation research. By enhancing the quality of research and releasing the potential of institutions involved in the evaluation process, we contribute to a better policy.

    The conference is organised by the Ministry of Economic Development and Polish Agency for Enterprise Development.

We are confident that this will have a significant impact on the preparation of high-quality evaluation research. By enhancing the quality of research and releasing the potential of institutions involved in the evaluation process, we contribute to a better policy.

    The history of our conference dates back to 2005 when we organized the first edition of the event. Since then, our mission has remained the same and for the past twelve years we have been developing evidence, skills and knowledge across Europe so that we can obtain the best possible results of our work. “Results” is the keyword of our conference. The objective of the 12th conference is to present outcomes of public policies based on evidence from evaluation. Evidence delivered by the evaluation process not only present outcomes of taken up actions but also explain mechanisms, opportunities and barriers of particular economies. The second goal of this year’s event is to point out to fields which might present challenges for evaluation units in the near future. New technologies, developing and demanding both fields and methods and institutional determinants that influence final results importantly will constitute the second pillar of the event.

    During this year’s event we will focus on broadly defined systems of evaluation encompassing both evaluation culture and evaluation methodology. Participants will be able to learn from four different panels: (1) Causal effects in evaluation, (2) Evaluation culture across the world, (3) Evaluation of development programmes, and (4) Application of serious games in evaluation. We will also discuss outcomes of policies implemented within European Union during the last couple of years, stressing especially those that reflect results of cohesion policy.

  25. I am an Assistant Director M&E at Ministry of Economic Planning & Budget, in Ondo State, Nigeria.
