What IPDET stands for

The International Program for Development Evaluation Training (IPDET) cooperates with strategic partners to build a global, inclusive, multi-disciplinary community committed to evaluative evidence improving development outcomes. We create space for people engaged in evaluation to come together to learn, exchange knowledge, and collaborate.

IPDET is an executive training program that aims to provide decision makers, managers and practitioners with the tools that are required to commission, manage and evaluate policies, programs, and projects at the local, national, regional, and global levels as well as use those evaluations for decision-making. IPDET sets a great focus on practice and provides a diversified approach for audiences from different organizations and sectors who play different roles in the evaluation process.
