Building Bridges: Use of evaluation for decision making and policy influence


  • Kathmandu Nepal

The Community of Evaluators – South Asia (CoE‐SA) is pleased to announce the 3rd Evaluation Conclave to be held at the Yak and Yeti Hotel in Kathmandu, Nepal from 23 to 27 November, 2015 (both days inclusive). Conclave 2015 is a special event being co‐organized with EvalPartners and the Parliamentarians’ Forum during the Global Evaluation Week, as a culmination of, and celebrating the International Year of Evaluation (EvalYear).

This will be the first time ever that four evaluation communities – regional (represented by the Community of Evaluators ‐ South Asia), global (represented by EvalPartners), policy makers including Parliamentarians from all over the world (represented by Parliamentarians’ Forum) and national (represented by Community of Evaluators, Nepal), will meet to discuss how to ensure “Evaluation is fit for purpose”.

The Community of Evaluators – South Asia has organised two successful Evaluation Conclaves in 2010 and in 2013 in New Delhi and in Kathmandu, respectively. The Conclaves have come to be recognized as the flagship event of CoE‐SA, and have provided numerous benefits to its members: a chance to network and partner with evaluation societies and experts from across the globe; a platform for evaluators from South Asia to meet each other and share their work, and as an opportunity to build capacity in evaluation theory and practice.

The key themes of the Conclave 2015 will be use, participation, equity, and gender.
