Include your evaluation in the next Australian Aid Evaluation Forum

Does your organisation have an evaluation it would like discussed in a constructive, public forum involving aid and evaluation experts?

Devpolicy and DFAT’s Office of Development Effectiveness (ODE) co-organise a twice-yearly forum on aid evaluations. The events run for three hours and are held at ANU in Canberra. Two or three evaluations are covered in each. The discussion of each evaluation involves a presentation from the evaluator, followed by a presentation from a person involved in running the aid activity that was evaluated. Then, a third presentation is given by a discussant with aid evaluation expertise.

Do you have an evaluation you are proud of? Do you want to show the rest of the aid community that your organisation believes in good evaluations? Would you like an evaluation from your organisation to be part of the next Australian Aid Evaluation Forum?

The next forum will be held in early April 2018.

If you are interested in being part of the April event please email an expression of interest to Terence Wood ( and Sachini Muller ( before 30 November. Please also email us if you have any questions. If your evaluation won’t be ready for the April event, but if you would like to engage in the future, please also get in touch.

We have some funding to assist in bringing participants from other parts of Australia to Canberra. (Note that funding is restricted to domestic travel).
