The roundtable titled ‘A Transformative Change in Development Evaluation: Opportunities and Challenges for Changing Practices, Mindsets and Values in International Organisations’ will take place during the 14th European Evaluation Society biennial conference, on 10 June. The session would aim to develop ways to overcome the (apparent/seemingly) tensions between the global development agenda and the evaluation practices in international organisations. The discussion will contribute to this process by reflecting about ways to overcome the resistance to transformative evaluations and creating incentives for commissioners and evaluators to adopt evaluation practices that can help organisations to achieve their transformative goals. The panel aims to uncover positive approaches to initiate and sustain changes within their organisations.
Johanna Pennarz, IOE Lead Evaluation Officer, co-coordinated the session, and S. Nanthikesan, IOE Lead Evaluation Officer, was among the panellists.
