The webinar was held on Friday, 21 June, from 14:30-16:00 (CET).
The Independent Office of Evaluation of IFAD (IOE) conducted an evaluation synthesis on inclusive financial services for the rural poor, which provides an opportunity to review IFAD's policies and identify good practices and lessons learned. It reviews IOE evaluations since 2009, and also draws on lessons from other international financial institutions.
The webinar's objectives were to: share the findings, lessons and conclusions drawn from the evaluation synthesis report and stimulate an exchange of experiences on lessons and challenges related to the effective support of inclusive rural finance.
Opening: Oscar A. Garcia, Director, IOE
Presenters: Johanna Pennarz, Lead Evaluation Officer, IOE; Martina Wiedmaier Pfister, IOE Consultant
Remarks: Michael Hamp, Lead Regional Technical Specialist, Rural Finance, Markets and Value Chains
