International Program for Development Evaluation Training

What Is IPDET?

Established in 2001, the International Program for Development Evaluation Training (IPDET) is an executive training program that aims to provide managers and practitioners the generic tools required to evaluate development policies, programs, and projects at the local, national, regional, and global levels. The program features a two-week Core Course, followed by two weeks of in-depth workshops, taught by a dynamic group of renowned international faculty drawn from Southern and Northern organizations. An intensive and unique training initiative of the Independent Evaluation Group of the World Bank and Carleton University, it is best known for its flagship training program offered each summer in Ottawa, Canada.

IPDET strives to provide a program in which participants:

  • develop basic knowledge of development evaluation concepts, processes, and methods (CoreCourse);
  • increase or upgrade their current depth or level of evaluation knowledge and skills (workshops);
  • enhance specific skills in designing and conducting evaluations of development programs;
  • meet people from around the globe who are engaged in development evaluation; and
  • create networks for future collaboration and knowledge sharing.
