This webinar is part of a wider consultation to support the Peer-to-Peer grant mechanism which is one of EvalPartners' tools to support VOPEs across the Global South.

Democracy, Human Rights, and Governance encompasses a wide array of programming and a multitude of methods to evaluate and learn from these key programs. This panel will present evidence from the field on clarifying what DRG programming looks like, how implementers and professional evaluators have attempted to monitor and evaluate it, and finally how we can take DRG evidence and translate it into policy work and to promote effective evidence-based decision making. Below is a list of the speakers and their presentations:
