Purpose of the Blog

Evaluation for Africa (E4A) aims to highlight the value of evaluation for development, showcase expertise and contributions, prompt debate, and raise interesting issues and challenges for the profession.

It also supports efforts to encourage home-grown innovations and evaluation tailored to local purposes, cultures and contexts, in line with the AfrEA ‘Made in Africa evaluation’ initiative.

It intends to give voice to the many people who contribute to development and to evaluation on the continent – evaluators, evaluation participants and users, managers, commissioners, funders, scholars, students, and more.

If you wish to write a post, let us know. At the moment the blog operates only in English. In spite of this, we would like to publish contributions from across this great continent. We also encourage others to establish blogs in Arabic, French, Portuguese or in local languages so that we can have multiple initiatives in support of evaluation in Africa. We can then use opportunities to translate and cross-post whenever feasible.

Please see the E4A ‘Themes’, ‘Contributors’ and ‘Contacts’ pages for more information.
