Global Evaluation Initiative (GEI)

Since 2021, IPDET has been an implementing partner of the Global Evaluation Initiative (GEI) and receives funds for scholarships and global outreach activities from GEI funding partners. GEI is an inclusive global partnership committed to developing country-owned, sustainable monitoring and evaluation (M&E) frameworks and capacities to promote the use of evidence in public decision-making, enhance accountability, and achieve better results. GEI believes that better evidence contributes to better policies and, ultimately, to better lives. GEI brings together a broad and diverse coalition of governments, (inter)national and local development organizations, and M&E experts to pool financial and technical resources to coordinate and expand M&E efforts globally.
