  • Support the establishment and growth of national evaluation associations or VOPEs
  • Facilitate capacity building, networking and sharing of evaluation theories, techniques and tools among evaluators, policymakers, researchers and development specialists.

In addition, AfrEA aims to empower members to influence national M&E system and policy in their respective states and represent Africa on the global stage of M&E.
You are invited to participate and attend this conference by attending as a delegate and/or submitting an Abstract for an Oral, Poster or Round Table Presentation as well for a Workshop.
