Evaluation capacity development of Volontary Organisations of Professional Evaluators through IOCE


The objective of teh EvalPartners initiative is to improve the efficiency, equality and evidence-base of public policies in developing countries by strengthening the evaluation capacities of voluntary organisations of professional evaluators (VOPE). The initiative supports VOPEs through strengthening their institutional structures, their strategic role and the professional capacities of their members. The process starts in 2012 by mapping the strengths and weaknesses of the VOPEs and by defining development strategies to address the challenges. The process will be supported by peer to peer learning and training. Early 2013 IOCE will organise an international conference that summarises the best practices and lessons learned of the VOPEs. UNICEF will support the IOCE in the preparation and implementation of the conference. During the conference follow-up strategies for supporting the evaluation capacities of the VOPEs will be developed. From the beginning of 2014 the administrative tasks are transferred from UNICEF to UN Women. During 2014-2015 activities will focus on advocacy for evaluation in policy making, peer-to-peer support to VOPEs, knowledge management system, e-learning, incentives for innovations.
