On 23 January 2023, Indran A. Naidoo and Fabrizio Felloni, IOE Director and Deputy Director respectively, will deliver a presentation to the Evaluation Unit of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), during a seminar titled ‘Building an Evaluation Culture. The experience of IFAD's IEO. Evaluation principles and practices to strengthen evaluation culture, improve transparency, and accountability’. The meeting will take place at PAHO headquarters, in Washington D.C.
The knowledge exchange session will afford the fast-maturing PAHO Evaluation Unit an opportunity to learn about UN experiences in advancing an evaluation culture, and to share insights and solutions about challenges in building said culture. The IOE delegation will also visit the Incident Management System Team, which is the operational heart from where all health emergency responses are coordinated, including the COVID-19 pandemic.
