Evaluation as a Driver of Economic Recovery and Long-Term Growth: Patterns and Directions in Africa

Can evaluation help to drive economic recovery and growth?

What do evaluators have to say about the recent financial crisis and prospects for economic recovery?

Can policy makers draw on relevant evaluation evidence in planning for recovery and growth?

Does evaluation theory and practice need to change to address these questions effectively?

Is there sufficient evaluation capacity in the region to make evaluation matter for Africa’s development?

These and other questions will be addressed by a panel of evaluation specialists: Benoit Chervalier, Guy Blaise Nkamleu, Eneas Gakusi, and Colin Kirk. Panel presentations will be followed by an open discussion. The session will be chaired by Aloysius Ordu, VP, Country and Regional Programs and Policy.
