Event Details

The Global Parliamentarians Forum for Evaluation (GPFE)
The Global Parliamentarians Forum for Evaluation (GPFE) was launched on 25th November 2015 at the Parliament of Nepal. This was a result of rapidly growing interest in the use of evaluation in governance. Launching of the Global Evaluation Agenda 2016 – 2020 at this event was a notable milestone and an achievement. In addition, International Year of Evaluation 2015, supported by EvalPartners was also celebrated at the Global Evaluation Forum 2015.
The Parliamentarians Global Event 2018
The Global Parliamentarians Forum for Evaluation together with Sri Lanka Parliamentarians Forum for Evaluation will host a three-day event from 17th to 19th of September 2018 in Sri Lanka. The objective of the Forum is to facilitate a dialogue on the growth of the parliamentary movement and greater use of evaluation and evidence based decision making within legislature.
