Who we are

The African Evaluation Association (AfrEA) is a non-profit umbrella for African Voluntary Organizations for Professional Development (VOPEs). It serves as a leading source of evaluation knowledge for individual evaluators in countries where national evaluation associations do not exist.

South to South Initiative (S2SE)

S2SE Objectives

The South to South Initiative (S2SE) is spearheaded by the five Global South regional evaluation associations (also known as Voluntary Organizations for Professional Evaluation) from Africa, South Asia, Asia Pacific, the Caribbean, and Latin America.

S2SE aims to elevate the substantial, but underutilized, indigenous knowledge, theory, and capacities of the Global South, and to reverse the asymmetries in decision-making, resources, and knowledge in the global evaluation ecosystem.

  • Expand awareness of the aim of S2SE, build capacity and create incentives for the engagement of southern evaluators in decisions about what is evaluated, with whom, for whom, and how – both within and beyond the aid and public sector agenda.
  • Engage in decision-making fora that shape evaluation in the Global South and worldwide, in order to ensure that the perspectives of Global South evaluators are central in determining agendas, resource flows, and governance of evaluation and development, particularly as it pertains to the Global South.
