The biennial conference serves as a primary platform for fostering the growth of a vibrant Monitoring & Evaluation (M&E) community in South Africa and increasing the use of M&E as valuable tools for achieving equitable and sustainable development. The conference offers a unique opportunity for M&E practitioners, government officials, donors, and policymakers to learn from leading experts and peers, sharing insights on new developments within the M&E field. As one of the most anticipated events of the year for those in the M&E sector, the SAMEA conference promises rich discussions and networking opportunities for M&E practitioners, evidence users and champions.

This year’s theme, “Vuca-Vuka! Catalysing Change Through Monitoring and Evaluation”, highlights the necessity of proactively responding to our world’s volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA) nature. The uncertainties and volatilities of the last several years call for us to wake up – Siyavuka sisebenzele ikusasa elingcono. Our hope is that the SAMEA conference will inspire and capacitate participants to adopt adaptive, collaborative and innovative approaches to their M&E practice that will help us collectively steer South Africa towards equitable and sustainable development.
