Complexity and evaluation

The next event in the ongoing series exploring how complexity is useful in the aid and development sectors will focus on evaluation.

Building on the previous sessions which have focused on the background and theoretical roots of complexity, we will have a brief introduction to some of the key issues and implications for evaluation approaches that attempt to address the complex nature of aid and development.

This day will explore a range of challenges for evaluation in complex social settings, such as: how to re-position evaluations to improve understanding of and responses to complexity; enhancing the learning function of monitoring and evaluation; improving programme adaptability through evaluation.
Places are limited, so if you would like to come please email Bec Shaw Crompton at Panos:

Please include a couple of sentences to describe your interest in this area – in the event that the day is oversubscribed we’ll use these as some kind of criteria for selection. Please also let us know if there is a case study of applying complexity to evaluation that you’d like to share on the day.
