The Pacific Community (SPC), the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) and BetterEvaluation are partnering to gather our regional stakeholders in a collaborative initiative to strengthen Pacific capacity for contextually and culturally appropriate monitoring, evaluation and learning (MEL). This initiative is brought about by a shared vision and commitment for Pacific-led MEL to support evidence-based policy and decision-making.
We are inviting key stakeholders and partners in the region who are champions of evidence-informed decision-making (including Pacific Island government departments and ministries, development partners, Pacific regional organisations, academia, and civil society) to a workshop in Nadi, Fiji from 6-8 August 2019. The purpose of the workshop is to develop a joint understanding of the strengths and needs in the Pacific in terms of collective and using evidence for decision-making and policy development. The outcome of the workshop will be the development of a navigational chart to map a way forward for collaboration in strengthening Pacific MEL capacity.
