Evaluation associations can leverage their membership to engage in knowledge construction through research and development.
The South African Monitoring and Evaluation Association (SAMEA):
SAMEA, in partnership with CREST (Centre for Research on Evaluation, Science and Technology) at Stellenbosch University and CLEAR-AA (Centre for Learning on Evaluation and Results in Anglophone Africa) at the University of the Witwatersrand, offered research grants as part of a multi-year program to strengthen the country evaluation system.
African researchers (living and working in Africa) who are doing research on evaluation in South Africa were eligible to apply to conduct research on the following topics:
The current state of South Africa’s evaluation system
Profiling evaluators and the commissioners of evaluations
Reviewing the evaluation architecture in SA, with specific reference to ethics, standards and competencies
Identifying examples of good practice in evaluation communities of practice (or professional learning communities).
Faster Forward Fund (3F):
- Evaluation associations and societies may consider identifying funding sources for research projects on evaluation methods and processes and support members through peer reviewing their funding applications.
