We are collaborating with InterAction to present a webinar on 'Introduction to Impact Evaluation', drawing on material from the BetterEvaluation project. This is the first of a four-part series of guidance notes and webinars on impact evaluation that InterAction is developing with financial support from the Rockefeller Foundation.
This week we are at the African Evaluation conference in Accra.
The theme of the conference is 'Rights and Responsibilities'. Today at 4pm in room ER1 we will present a panel session on how the BetterEvaluation project can help us meet our responsibilities to ensure that the right combination of methods are chosen for evaluation and implemented well - and address the question of who has the right to make the decisions about evaluation methods.
The fully interactive site will go live at this URL later in 2012 [Updated - now scheduled for September 2012].

Here is a sneak peek of the latest version of our new home page. The new 'rainbow' graphic helps quick navigation to particular methods. It reinforces the message that good evaluation is not just about appropriate methods for collecting, synthesising and analyzing data, but also about other components, such as appropriate framing of the evaluation's purpose, identifying intended users, clarification of the underpinning values, causal analysis, effective reporting and supporting use of the evaluation findings.
The Institutional Learning and Change (ILAC) Initiative of the CGIAR, in partnership with WFP, FAO and IFAD, organized a worskhop on evaluation in Rome, at FAO, on 19 September 2011.
