I hope this note finds you well. Attached is the most recent issue of the OECD/DAC Network on Development Evaluation Newsletter dedicated to Evaluation Capacity Development (ECD) and put together by David Rider Smith and his team at DFID.

I had the pleasure to contribute to this publication (see the synopsis of my article on the "RBM-ization" and "Normalization" of the Evaluation function on page 7). All the other authors shared some very interesting perspectives on ECD from their unique organizational standpoints. Overall, the one attached is a reader-friendly and -hopefully-inspirational piece for all those within our community who are interested in ECD.
Stay tuned for more interesting ECD work coming up this summer! I would be particularly interested in hearing back from some gender and evaluation professionals out there on the challenges that they have faced so far during the design and implementation of their ECD strategies.
