Capacity Building: An Important Aspect of Evaluation Eco-System

Partners: Global Evaluation Initiative, Evaluation Community of India

Monitoring and evaluation eco-system is constantly evolving in multiple dimensions including innovations in approaches and frameworks; methodologies for conducting evaluations; techniques of data collection and analysis; involvement of stakeholders, evaluation systems and policies and so on. These evolving blocks need varying types of evaluation capacities both vertically and horizontally to make evaluations professionalized and institutionalized. There is evidence, lots of discussion and learning that professional evaluations lead to better use of results.

In this context, the panel will explore and discuss the present scenario of evaluation eco-system in India with special focus upon initiatives in the direction of professionalization of evaluations. There will be five panelists in the session with their specific sub-topics including Aniruddha Brahmachari from LEAD at Krea University. This will be part of the gLOCAL Evaluation Week (convened by the Global Evaluation Initiative to learn, exchange and share local and global M&E knowledge).
