About Us
Who’s in Charge of the Conclave? The conclave was conceptualized by the South Asian Community of Evaluators (COE) and the International Development Research Centre (IDRC). The COE is a group of evaluators from South Asia working together to strengthen the field of evaluation in South Asia (see , http://www.communityofevaluators.com). The Association for Stimulating Knowledge (ASK) and Sambodhi (both COE members) volunteered to jointly coordinate the event with IDRC as a strategic partner.
 
Community of Evaluators (COE) in South Asia has been constituted in October 2008 as part of a Project titled "Advancing Evaluation Theory and Practices in South Asia – Building a Community of Experts. The Community presently has 36 members from South Asian Countries namely Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. The Goal of the CoE is – “to promote and enhance the quality of the theory and practice of evaluation in South Asia and to contribute to the same, particularly from a South Asian perspective, globally. International Development Research Centre (IDRC) is the organization providing financial, technical and networking support to the CoE.
The International Development Research Centre (IDRC) is a Crown corporation created by the Parliament of Canada in 1970 to help developing countries use science and technology to find practical, long-term solutions to the social, economic, and environmental problems they face. Our support is directed toward creating a local research community whose work will build healthier, more equitable, and more prosperous societies.
