This workshop discusses several challenges (and opportunities) for conducing evaluations in times of covid-19, structured around three main questions:
- a) How does covid-19 affect the scope of evaluations? – Even after the pandemic, the effects of covid-19 will continue to be visible in policies, the economy and societal values and behaviors. How do we approach this as evaluators?
- b) How do we collect data under the restrictive circumstances of covid-19? What have we learned? What approaches are likely to be discontinued or continued going forward?
- c) How can we improve the things that we can continue doing under the restrictive circumstances of covid-19? Have we become more rigorous and innovative in our desk reviews and data analyses? Has covid-19 accelerated innovation in evaluation? In what ways has the pandemic changed (or is it likely to change) the pace and direction of innovation in the use of methods and data in evaluation?
