IDEAS is an independent association of evaluation professionals, those interested in evaluation, and those who seek to bring credible information and knowledge to the development agenda. As you know IDEAS is organising an international evaluation conference next week in Bangkok. If you are attending kindly leave your names in the comments section so that all members of Gender and Evaluation community can know who is attending. Maybe we can meet informally. Also share if you are presenting at the conference.

Will try to share whatever I learn. Would that be ok? As you shared the photos of SLEVA conference, through them I got a glimpse what happened. It was nice. Also I am presenting our gender and evaluation community. Would you have any ideas on how and what to share? Thanks!
My Pleasure and please do so. Yes I would like to share since i am attached to SLEvA as well as I am one of the Board Member and Elected Secretary from 1st of November to APEA (Asian Pacific Evaluation Association), that through my work proven experience developing and using innovative qualitative evaluation techniques to assess the gender base violence awareness among the garment factory workers in Sri Lanka. How ever we faced enormous challenges , during the data collections scenario. i.e. it was known factor in the program level that most awareness has been deliver to women groups than men groups. But our evaluations of well balance gender FDGs, during the session we were able to receive unexpected hostile from elder men populations as well as collaborative approach from young men populations.
