08 August 2022

The IPDET on-site program ended on July 22 with a fantastic graduation night for 138 participants from 63 countries who came together at the University of Bern in Switzerland for 2 intensive weeks of joint learning and networking. 


Dr. Alison Evans, Director General and Vice President, Independent Evaluation Group of the World Bank Group, joined virtually with a keynote speech on “Evaluation - fit for purpose and fit for the future?” Watch the Keynote HERE. GEI's Program Manager, Dugan Fraser opened the 2nd Week of the program with interesting insights on the GEI mission and IPDET`s role as core implementing partners.
