CALL FOR PAPERS 2nd REGIONAL CONFERENCE FOR EVALUATORS IN THE WESTERN BALKANS
25-26 X 2017, HOTEL INTERNATIONAL, ZAGREB
Organised by the Western Balkan Evaluation Network (WBEN), Croatian Evaluation Network/Institute of Economics, Zagreb (HEM/EIZ) and Croatian Section of the European Regional Science Association (ERSA)
The PROGRAMME BOARD of the 2nd Regional conference of Western Balkan Evaluators invites members of evaluation networks and other interested experts that deal with evaluation of public policies, programmes and projects to submit abstracts based on practical evaluation experience and/or scientific research to be presented at the conference by 15th July 2017.
EvalPartners is pleased to launch the 2017 round of "Innovation Challenges" thanks to a generous contribution from the Government of Finland. The objective of this round of innovation challenges is to pilot, experiment and implement advocacy ideas for evidence-based approaches that can help bring on board “non-traditional” evaluation actors to harness their contribution to EvalAgenda 2020.
Discussions during the 3rd Global Evaluation Forum which organized by EvalPartners in Bishkek – Kyrgyzstan in April 2017 concluded that “… there is a need to build the demand for evaluation results among a broad range of stakeholders, including parliamentarians, private sector, academe, civil society groups, citizens, and the media. This demand should be institutionalized through corresponding laws and policies on evaluation practice and use. As translation of SDGs to national and local levels remains a challenge, one of the functions of evaluation is to make SDGs meaningful for various stakeholders and in various contexts…” This is exactly what this innovation challenge is trying to address, by opening-up the boundaries of evaluation practice beyond evaluators and commissioners of evaluation.
EvalPartners will privilege out-of-the-box, agile and quick turnaround actions in response to this call. Unlike the Peer to Peer (P2P) mechanism which is exclusively restricted to VOPEs, Innovation Challenges are open to VOPEs, but also non-profits, academia, advocacy coalitions, think-tanks and other Civil Society Organizations, as long as they engage into an organic partnership with one or VOPEs from the Global South. Outcome of the Innovation Challenges are expected to inform the 2018-2020 action plan of EvalPartners.
We look forward receiving your proposals and working together with you on new "challenges".
The second issue of the EvalGender newsletter (Issue #2, May 2017) is now available!

Hope you enjoy reading the newsletter.
