As part of our Evidence for Impact Webinar Series, Social Impact invites you to a webinar titled “Developmental Evaluation: What is Fundamental and What is Flexible?” on Tuesday, May 31st from 8:15-9:15am EST. This webinar will explore the essential principles of developmental evaluation (DE) and how funders adapt them to generate and use evidence. As DE gains traction, organizations are taking advantage of its flexibility to suit their contexts and needs. But how much flexibility is too much and what is really essential? Speakers will discuss their experiences adapting DE, including for USAID’s Coordinating Implementation Research to Communicate Learning and Evidence Project (CIRCLE) in Tanzania and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) global response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The session will also share resources for those interested in DE implementation from USAID Developmental Evaluation Pilot Activity (DEPA-MERL) and the William Davidson Institute (WDI) at the University of Michigan.
