Key themes of the conference:
• strengthening evaluation policies and institutions in South Asia;
• promoting dialogue on evidence-based policymaking among different stakeholders in South Asia;
• building momentum for a culture of evaluation and improving public policies and practices through knowledge sharing.
Throughout low- and middle-income countries, money is being spent on development programmes that may have the best of intentions and logically should work, but they do not. Others work, but policymakers struggle to understand why, which can stall efforts to scale up success stories.
This event explored ways in which impact evaluations can improve policymaking and development programmes in South Asia.
