The 3rd APEA Conference and EvalFest 2022 took place virtually from 21 to 25 February 2022. The theme of the event, “Towards a Vibrant Evaluation Ecosystem: Creativity, Collaboration and Convergence”, reflected that the evaluation ecosystem needs to be energetic and dynamic, and respond to the emerging and evolving evaluation arena with proactive thinking.
