From March 27th to 31st 2017, the African Evaluation Association will hold its 8th AfrEA International Conference in Muyonyo Commonwealth Resort, Kampala, Uganda, in collaboration with the Uganda Evaluation Association and the Office of the Prime Minister of Uganda. The 2017 Conference, themed “Evaluation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): Opportunities and Challenges for Africa”, aims to promote exchange between researchers, academia, emerging evaluators and practitioners on demand and supply of credible evaluative evidence in support of the SDGs in Africa. It will also build capacity to design, manage and use evaluations to help governments achieve their national and international development agendas, particularly around the SDGs and the Africa 2063 Agenda.
To contribute to the capacity building objectives of this conference, the Development Impact Evaluation (DIME) unit of the World Bank Development Research Group (DECRG) has signed a Strand Coordination Agreement with AfrEA. Through this agreement, DIME has committed to conduct an Impact Evaluation (IE) workshop aiming at providing technical tools in rigorous IEs methods to workshop participants, and showcasing the role of IEs in helping developing countries deliver on the SDGs.
