Webinar – How IFAD promotes learning among development partners in the field

As a follow-up to the United Nations Evaluation Group (UNEG) study on “Evaluation Use in the UN System”, the Independent Office of Evaluation of IFAD (IOE) would like to invite you to a webinar discussion on:

How IFAD promotes learning among development partners in the field

Tuesday,15 November, 2016
3:30 pm (CET)


Key message 6 from the study addresses an important fact: No development organization operates in isolation. Whether it be government counterparts, partner UN agencies or national development stakeholders, there is a broad audience for evaluation products, their findings and their recommendations. It is in this spirit that in 1994 the Independent Office of Evaluation of IFAD launched the practice of hosting a national workshop learning event as a final step in the country programme evaluation process, bringing together participants from the national government, national development organizations and IFAD.

The objective of this webinar is to share with participants a look into the practice of hosting this national learning events and the impact that such events and related evaluation products have beyond the publication of an evaluation report and stimulate the exchange of experiences of UN evaluators regarding cross-organizational learning and sharing.

The webinar will start with a presentation, followed by a Q&A session.



Oscar A. Garcia, Director, IOE (

Johanna Pennarz, Lead Evaluation Officer, IOE (


The special guests will include an IFAD out-posted Country Programme Manager and a Country Programme Officer.

Please feel free to forward the invitation to colleagues who are interested in the subject. Hope you will be able to attend!
