How can national evaluation systems stay resilient in times of crisis?

National evaluation systems are essential pillars of effective governance. They provide evidence to assess the effectiveness of public policies and development programs, enabling informed decision-making.

However, sustaining evaluation systems can be a challenge when countries experience crises or conflicts. During periods of instability, governments struggle to maintain these systems due to resource shortages, expertise loss, and political uncertainty.

Despite these challenges, some countries have managed to keep their evaluation systems alive amid difficult circumstances. How?

On May 14, the Global Evaluation Initiative (GEI) and the Center for Learning on Evaluation and Results for Francophone Africa (CLEAR-FA) will hold a webinar to explore challenges and opportunities in making national evaluation systems more resilient and more sustainable within contexts of instability.

Join us for another global exchange of perspectives and experiences. English and French translations will be provided during the webinar.
