Asian Evaluation Week 2016

05 September 2016 to 09 September 2016

This inaugural learning event, co-sponsored by the People’s Republic of China, Ministry of Finance Asia-Pacific Finance and Development Institute, and the Asian Development Bank Independent Evaluation Department, focused on the exchange and synthesis of ideas on the latest and practicable thinking on evaluation.

Gathering around 25 countries from Asia and the Pacific; heads of evaluation units of multilateral development banks in Asia, Africa, Europe, and Latin America; heads of evaluation units of UN agencies; and international evaluation experts, this event was organized in response to the growing attention on the use of evaluation for better results and accountability and aimed at enhancing evidence-based decision making to contribute to the development of Asia.

It is expected that this event will be repeated in the succeeding year and will become an annual event in bringing together evaluation colleagues to discuss the recent trends in evaluation thinking.
