Evaluation Week

Driving Africa’s Transformation

Good practices and strategies for development practitioners.

At the African Development Bank HQ, Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire

The 2016 AfDB Evaluation Week aims to foster sharing of evidence-based knowledge related to the five core areas of the AfDB for the next five years, the “High 5s” (light up and power Africa; feed Africa; integrate Africa; industrialize Africa, and improve the quality of life of Africans). To kick-off the discussions, IDEV will host a knowledge workshop and a  knowledge café on Monday 07th November. The high-level event will kick-off on Tuesday 08th November and will offer participants a variety of knowledge-gaining sessions, with keynote speeches, panel discussions, lunchtime debates and presentations by thought-leaders.
