Stefanie Krapp and Reinhard Stockmann on IPDET’s relevance:

The International Program for Development Evaluation Training (IPDET) is a globally recognized and respected player in advanced training in the field of evaluation. The courses and workshops are tailored to the needs of professionals who commission, manage, practice or use evaluations.

This unique training program brings together global expertise in evaluation to build foundational and advanced knowledge and skill in evaluation. Over the past years, more than 4000 professionals received training and joined the global and multi-disciplinary IPDET network.

Target audience:
IPDET is targeted at individuals from NGOs, Ministries and Public Administration Institutions, bi- and multilateral development partners, Think Tanks, Universities, private firms, as well as (development) activists and parliamentarians who are eager to drive development in projects, programs and policies on local, national and international level. Although the context of IPDET is development evaluation, it is not limited to that perspective. It rather entails the whole range of work that participants perform in their countries in different organizations and positions to drive the overall development of a country.

We are all shocked what is happening right now in Europe! We stand side by side with our Ukrainian friends! The threat to freedom concerns whole Europe!

Evaluation is the result of democratic structures and stands for freedom of speech, transparency, and truth. Let’s do everything possible to support our Ukrainian fellows and our governments to stop the war!

Please see the official appeal of the Ukrainian Evaluation Association and the Statement of the European Evaluation Society here:

How we can support:

If you have possibility to offer shelter for Ukrainian refugees:
Any kind of support of Ukraine is well appreciated.

“Attending IPDET did not only refine my M&E knowledge, but it also made me a member of a global M&E-family for professional networking, learning and supporting one another.”
