The African Evaluation Association (AfrEA) is a voluntary organization focused on the promotion of Africa-rooted evaluation theory and practice, including supporting capacity building and learning for evidence-based policy in Africa. AfrEA was founded in 1999 to meet the growing demand and challenges to achieve these objectives
Early in 2015, IBTCI was awarded the Evidence for Development (E4D) activity. E4D is a five-year, award funded by the USAID/West Africa (WA) Regional Health Office (RHO). USAID/WA’s RHO reaches 21 countries in West and Central Africa, all of which have access to the E4D activity. The initial focus is on six target countries, namely: Togo, Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Niger, Cameroon and Mauritania
AfrEA is partnering with E4D to provide online tutorials leading to certification in Monitoring and Evaluation and Evaluation Research for VOPE members. AfrEA will develop the online certificate course contents and tutorials through its extensive network of professional evaluators, who will be contracted at a minimal token fee to assist in the development of the course contents.
