Join this week's Thursday Talk webinar discussion with DEPA-MERL Consortium (funded by USAID).
Developmental Evaluation (DE) has continued to gain popularity due to its adaptable, utilization-focused approach and suitability for complex environments. DE goes above and beyond traditional evaluation methods by embracing real-time learning, complementing the dynamic elements of programs, and making it uniquely suited for innovative or untested approaches. DEPA-MERL has launched multiple guides to help donors and practitioners address the novelty of and challenges around DE as a concept.
In our discussion with DEPA, participants will get a closer look at how DE can bring value to peacebuilding, development, and stabilization work. DEPA will share lessons learned on using DE in complex environments, as well as best practices for using DE in today’s virtual spaces. Finally, Sierra and Lily will highlight initial steps for those interested in scoping and planning their own DE.
This Thursday, April 29th, at 10:00am EDT, Sierra Frischknecht and Lilly Crown Wilder will discuss “Developmental Evaluation in the Context of DM&E”, and it is sure to be full of practical advice and real-world insights.
