With around 120 participants on 18 October, we started our first ever IPDET Global Outreach activity ‘Better policy making through evaluations – Training for Parliaments in Asia Pacific’ in cooperation with Asia Pacific Evaluation Association (APEA) and The Global Parliamentarians Forum for Evaluation (GPFE).
The main question of the first session ‘Use of evaluations for political steering and participation of society’ was to what extent evaluations could support the work of parliamentarians. This was answered by a short input of Prof. Reinhard Stockmann and further be illustrated by means of practical examples from Kyrgyzstan, Sri Lanka and Uganda.
