BRIEF HISTORY

The idea to form an inclusive National Monitoring and Evaluation Society(NES) was spearheaded mainly by IPDET alumni operating in Rwanda and actively supported by the Government of Rwanda in early 2015. On January 19th, 2016, the first meeting of M&E peer learning group was convened under the auspices of the National Capacity Building Secretariat(NCBS).

The first output of this meeting was the establishment of a task force in November 2016 which drew the roadmap of the NES and spearhead activities in that direction. Thus, on November 4, 2016, more than 90 high profile evaluation practitioners, evaluation commissioners, and evaluation users graced the occasion to officially launch the society.
