A peek into celebration of EvalYear 2015 in India

2015 has been declared as the International Year of Evaluation (EvalYear). National Institute of Labour Economics Research and Development (Formerly IAMR) and Programme Evaluation Organisation, NITI Aayog, Government of India are organising a five day EvalWeek to celebrate EvalYear 2015. A group of partners are supporting NILERD in organisation of this event.

Topics of focus- 
One of the topic that need focus and attention as a result of this EvalWeek Celebration is ‘Development and Adoption of Evaluation Policy’ in the Country. Another area that requires focus is need for professional evaluators and development of M&E as a discipline in India. Optimal utilization of the evaluation findings and follow-up actions will be another issue of deliberation during the Eval Week. There is also a need for equity focussed and gender responsive evaluations. Experience shows that ‘gender’ and ‘Equity’ comes after the evaluations are over. Equity and Gender should be one of the non-negotiable areas that should cut across all stages of planning and implementation of Evaluations. Another important aspect for discussion during Evalweek will be Ethics. In this regard, a Roundtable on Ethics in Evaluation focusing on practices and challenges will be organized.

Who will participate? Local, national and international development partners, NGOs, researchers, academia, parliamentarians, civil society representatives, community members and government representatives will come together to share knowledge and set future agenda as all are stakeholders in national development planning and implementation.

Shri Rao Inderjit Singh (Hon’ble Minister of State for Planning) will inaugurate the event and Mr. Marco Segone Director - IEO, UN Women, Co-chair – UNEG, Co-chair – EvalPartners) will deliver the key note address.
