    The Evaluation Support Service is a Technical Assistance to the Directorate-General Development Cooperation of the European Commission, whose aim is to strengthen capacity in the evaluation field across the organization (including the EU Delegations in partner countries).

    We are now organizing a cycle of lunch-break conferences on ‘Evaluation in hard-to-reach areas’ where evaluators and commissioners of evaluation from different horizons will present their experience in using methods such as use of geo-spatial data, surveys administered by non-specialised local enumerators, phone/tablet voice or data surveys, location tracking, communication through online platforms, etc.  The two last conferences will be respectively devoted to discussing conflict sensitivity in evaluating in fragile and conflict-affected states; and to the consequences on our traditional ethical rules of the use of these ‘innovative’ techniques.

    The conferences can be followed via webstream; although they are mainly intended to an internal audience (managers of evaluation at the EC/DG DEVCO), all conferences are open to the public and the participation is free. The first of these conferences will take place on January the 4th of February and the cycle will end in June this year.

    The most updated version of the presentation paper of this cycle of conferences (which includes dates, presentation of the speakers, etc.) is available at https://web.tresorit.com/l#5ZZoMG3EfZ8MOThfLrDcPA

    The Challenge:

    Participation of stakeholders and citizens is increasingly recognized as a helpful and, in some circumstances, crucial ingredient when managing complex, adaptive socio-ecological systems. The scale, interconnectedness and ongoing dynamics of these systems require new approaches bringing together stakeholder knowledge and problem ownership with new complexity-appropriate tools. Such approaches have much to offer both ex-post evaluation and ex-ante policy appraisal.  However, methods for achieving effective participation are not well understood and often fail and participatory approaches for complex systems entail even greater challenges. Recently, there have been a range of interesting experiments and innovations involving aids to participation in complex adaptive systems ranging from immersive digital tools to “low tech” hands-on or experiential techniques.

    CECAN Workshop:

    We will be holding a workshop on 12-14 February, 2019, at the Barnett Hill Conference Centre, Surrey, UK, as a first step towards building an international community of those developing innovative, complexity-appropriate aids to participatory evaluation, to help people understand and steer their own complex systems and evaluate the effects of policies or other interventions.

    Our focus will be on exploring and synthesising new approaches to collective understanding, experiencing and interacting with socio-ecological-technical systems in which numerous scales of dynamics and complexity are at play.  We will examine the value of such approaches and how they could be used in collaborative system design and co-management and policy evaluation and appraisal, in particular to allow ordinary people, rather than simply policy makers or experts, to understand, steer and evaluate change in their own complex social systems. This will be a highly interactive and focused small workshop in which we will share, generate and kick start ideas and collaborations and all attendees will be expected to participate fully.

    Contributors Will Include:

    Petra Ahrweiler, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Germany

    Luis Enrique García Barrios, College of the South Frontier, Mexico

    Nigel Gilbert, University of Surrey, UK

    Mizuki Oka, University of Tsukuba

    Alex Penn, University of Surrey, UK

    Pascal Perez, SMART Infrastructure Facility, University of Wollongong, Australia

    Alex Smajgl, Deakin University, Australia

    Sha Xin Wei and Brandon Mechtley, Synthesis Center, Arizona State University, USA

    How to Apply:

    If you are interested in participating, please apply by 22 October 2018 by email tocecan@surrey.ac.uk attaching a statement outlining your background, expertise and what you could bring to the workshop (500 words maximum). We encourage creative and interactive proposals for sharing your ideas and approaches.

    The workshop will be held at the Barnett Hill Hotel in the Surrey Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The hotel is within reach of London Gatwick Airport.  The registration fee of £550 includes all accommodation and meals at the Conference Centre from 11:00 on 12 February to 16:00 on 14 February.  Additional nights, before and after the workshop, can be booked at extra cost.

    The workshop is being organised by the Centre for the Evaluation of Complexity Across the Nexus (CECAN) and is supported by the UK Economic and Social Research Council.

    Intersectionality as Critical Inquiry, Method, and Practice: Beyond Categories and Dichotomies in Culturally Responsive Evaluation and Assessment

    https://crea.education.illinois.edu/home/fifth-international-conference  

     Conference Focus Statement

    Escalating domestic and global tensions in our social, political, and economic institutions require that we acknowledge the urgency as well as imperative to expand how we conceptualize our work, so that it does not continue the perpetuation of underrepresenting the issues facing People of Color. These issues should be apparent to most, passively acknowledged by some, and indignantly ignored by others. When we frame the issues and opportunities that define our work, understanding intersectionality is essential if we are to avoid inadvertently prioritizing the needs of some over the conditions of others.

    Hosted by the College of Education, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

    Do you want to know how monitoring and evaluation can support the transition towards inclusive and sustainable food systems? Register now for our 2019 Monitoring & Evaluation on the cutting edge conference, and find out!

    Understanding inclusive & sustainable food systems

    In order to deliver on the 2030 SDG-Agenda, we need to improve on the performance of food systems. ‘Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals cannot happen without ending hunger and malnutrition and without having sustainable and resilient, climate-compatible agriculture and food systems that deliver for people and planet. (Source: UN Zero Hunger Challenge - ZHC).

    Better understanding of and support for inclusive and sustainable food systems is needed for improved food systems. What effective role should monitoring and evaluation play in this? New evaluation approaches need to be developed to cope with the dynamic and complex nature of food systems, which feature multiple perspectives, multiple levels, multiple actors with multiple goals operating in multiple sectors.

    The conference: an overview

    The International Development Evaluation Association – IDEAS – and the Independent Evaluation Office of the Global Environment Facility (GEF/IEO) and the Earth-Eval Community of Practice proudly invite you to participate in the exciting and challenging event organized in partnership with the Czech Evaluation Society, under the auspices of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic. The conference will be held in Prague at the Hotel Duo Prague, from 30 September to 4 October 2019.

    The overall theme of the Conference is Evaluation for Transformative Change: Bringing experiences of the Global South to the Global North.

    Agenda 2030, adopted by the member states of the United Nations in September 2015, calls for new partnerships to work towards a sustainable and equitable future for humanity on our planet. It radically redefines development and asks for transformative changes of our societies, our economies and of the way we interact with nature and our habitat. While this is most strongly emphasised in the Paris Climate Agreement and its follow-up meetings, transformative changeis a cross-cutting issue throughout the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Each country needs to identify its own transformation priorities.

    I invite you to address the following types of questions in our conference this year:

    1. What frameworks, experiences, methods and practices best prepare us to address key issues of our time—massive migration (and the economic and social challenges that accompany it), climate change disasters, epidemic threats, and shifts in resources through economic globalization. In what way do our evaluations help our stakeholders understand the impact of these issues locally, in every evaluation we undertake?
    2. How do we innovate and adapt our thinking, methods and practices to ensure our evaluations address the important societal challenges of today, and enable our communities to have informed and productive conversations?
    3. How do we ensure our evaluation practices “leave no one behind,” as promised by 150 countries committed to the SDGs – i.e., how do we promote equity, diversity and the protection of human rights for all involved and affected by our evaluations?
    4. How do we bring leadership competence to our evaluations? How do we prepare ourselves to be credible evaluators as we step into the controversial issues in our society or manage the anxiety our presence may stir? How do we stay independent and impartial, think calmly and creatively, act methodically and insightfully, consult all sides, include members of marginalized communities, and manage an evaluation that frames things systematically and provides credible answers to the most important questions?

  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.

    I am interested to attend the conference, can i get detailed information on how to apply?

    Thanks

  26. I have interest in the conference participation.I come from Liberia and I am a Monitoring & Evaluation Specialist.
