The blog titled “Made in Africa Evaluation: Africa’s novel approach towards its developmental paths (Part 1) provided an historical overview on some of the initiatives proposed to pioneer the MAE concept by various African scholars and evaluation practitioners. These include Prof. Zenda Ofir, Prof. Bagele Chilisa, Dr. Sukai Prom Jackson and Dr. Sully Gariba just to name a few. As a follow-up, Part 2 of the blog aims to explore some of the factors that influence maturity of the MAE concept beyond rhetoric and into practice, and raises a question around its uptake within the broader evaluation discourse.

NEW BLOG: Civic Collaboration in Motion: CSOs Explore Space for Results-Driven Collaboration with Government. By Susan Lado.

Civic collaboration is in motion, just as the systems that govern responses to the complexity of global ‘grand challenges’ are perpetually in motion. On February 6, 2018, the Centre for Learning on Evaluation and Results – Anglophone Africa (CLEAR-AA) hosted a workshop, funded by the Twende Mbele project, to determine what collaborative space potentially exists between Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and Government for strengthening of the National Evaluation System (NES) in South Africa. This workshop constituted one of a series of interventions, held in Benin and Uganda in 2017. A wide range of thought leaders in the South African (SA) Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) space contributed immensely to discussions centred on the entrenched epistemologies in the field of M&E. Central to these discussions was the critical question of what space there is, for ‘epistemological jailbreak 1 ’ in the way that practitioners think about Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E). Clearly we are living in a time of unprecedented opportunity for CSOs and government to drive results-based development agendas to achieve sustainable change. In particular, the accelerating emergence of CSOs in areas that are central to the progressive realisation of countries’ national agendas, are a lodestar pointing to the fact that the relationship between government and CSOs can in fact run far deeper, at a systems level.

The 2018 Padkos series kick started with a presentation that sought to share experiences on an evaluation project tracing beneficiaries of training programmes funded by one of the Sector Education Training Authority (SETA) in South Africa. Padkos sessions are designed to provide staff with a platform that promotes robust engaged learning, critical thinking and knowledge sharing which is a significant part of CLEAR-AAs vision of being a learning organisation. The presentation reflected on common challenges within evaluation projects and potential ways of addressing these, with the intention of learning through anecdotal experiences. Read more Padkos Blog

The Centre for Learning on Evaluation and Results – Anglophone Africa (CLEAR-AA-AA) in collaboration with Wits University launched the Development Evaluation Training Programme in Africa (DETPA) on 14 August 2017. This was in response to the high demand for Evaluation Capacity Building (ECB) across the African continent. Training is a critical component of CLEAR-AA’s Evaluation Capacity Development model and the DETPA represents one of its interventions aiming to build a cohort of African evaluators and practitioners to strengthen evaluation practice on the continent.

By Caitlin Mapitsa

At the recent conference of the South Africa Monitoring and Evaluation Association (SAMEA), I attended a stream on lessons learned from Evaluation Case Studies. At CLEAR, we often struggle with how to codify and synthesize our evaluation tools, approaches, and experiences, therefore I joined the stream in the hope of learning from other organisations’ case studies.

My impressions from the stream are as follows: (more…)
