BRIEF HISTORY OF APEM

Association for the Promotion of Evaluation in Mali was created in 2006 under the initiative of national experts who work in the field of local development.

This initiative is part of the observation that evaluation is a privileged instrument of good governance allowing  the initiation of a systematic process and an objective assessment of a project, a  program or development  policy; but the period of evaluation often constitutes times of panic and stress within the structures  presented to it.

 PROFILE APEM

The mission of EMPA is to promote evaluation as a tool for good governance in the control and management of projects and developmental projects at national, regional and local levels in Mali.
Objectives
– produce and disseminate standards in evaluation
– develop national evaluation capacities
– create an avenue for public debate around public action
– Build consensus around the main principles and priority areas of evaluation
