The main purpose of the evaluation is to take stock of the progress towards improved outcomes for young children, particularly for the most disadvantaged, to inform the Government policy formulation and implementation and help shape UNICEF’s further support in achieving ECD-related SDG targets and other international and national commitments.
Student evaluation case competitions are an excellent mechanism for developing evaluation capacity. They give students a hands-on experience with evaluation of a program or policy. This practical experience increases their understanding of the importance of evaluation and, in some cases, may be the starting point for a professional career in our discipline.
We are excited to announce that this August, Claremont Evaluation Center is offering its annual Professional Development Workshops, which provide working professionals and students with world-class practical and theoretical training in evaluation and applied research.
On 27-28 April 2019, the Parliament of Tanzania – a founding member of the African Parliamentarians Network on Development Evaluation (APNODE) and one of the 7 Parliaments in Africa that were signatories to the 2014 Yaounde Declaration of African Parliamentarians on Evaluation – collaborated with the Tanzania Evaluation Association (TanEA) to organize a workshop on the roles of parliamentarians in the development of national evaluation policy. The event was supported by UNICEF, as a partner of the Tanzania Evaluation Association (TanEA). One of the main objectives of the workshop is to support the Parliament of Tanzania to translate the commitments made in Yaounde Declaration into actions.
