Minister Gungubele to reflect on the importance of evaluations in improving developmental outcomes

In an effort to improve implementation, developmental outcomes, and institutionalisation of evaluations, the Department of Planning, Monitoring & Evaluation (DPME) will host the National Evaluations Seminar (NES) in Pretoria, on 15 to 16 November 2022. 

The seminar will be officially opened by the Minister in The Presidency, Mondli Gungubele, and attend by various evaluation practitioners across the three spheres of Government as well as State owned entities (SOEs), international stakeholders, civil society, professional bodies, and academia.

Several international speakers such as Bagele Chilisa of the University of Botswana, Andy Rowe of the Canadian Evaluation Association, Rashon Lane of the Harvard University will deliver papers on Decolonising Evaluations: Context Specific Evaluations, Rapid Impact Evaluation, and Evaluative Thinking respectively. 

The seminar will also reflect on the implementation of the National Evaluation Policy Framework (NEPF), which was developed by the DPME in 2019. 

It is expected that the seminar will enhance the knowledge, skills, and capabilities of the evaluation professional in identified areas; provide a platform for networking on best practices and professional experience, keep participants abreast of emerging local and international trends and their implication towards the strengthening of the National Evaluation System of South Africa and stimulate thinking and engagement on evaluation-related subjects.
