USAID’s Regional Development Mission for Asia (RDMA) and the United Nations Evaluation Development Group for Asia and the Pacific (UNEDAP) hosted the “Asia Regional Evaluation Summit” on September 11-12 at the USAID Asia Regional Training Center in Bangkok. Nearly 100 development professionals, representing 15 countries, from NGOs, universities, regional organizations, USAID and the UN, attended the Summit.
The event focused on two themes which align with RDMA’s evolving strategy. Event resources can be found at the pages linked below.
Day 1: Reducing Inequalities
Day 2: Building Local Capacity
The Summit is envisioned to be the first in an upcoming annual series of Summits which provide a platform to connect with Asia-based implementers, donors, academics, and innovators from the region to mine key learnings, disseminate findings to the region, and identify possible areas for regional expansion or replication. It was also a means to exchange good practices and lessons learned in research and M&E approaches, methodologies, and tools.
