We are proud to have hosted an event as part of the International Year of Evaluation with the Centre for Development Impact (CDI). The Evaluation Torch passed through Wilton Park, symbolising the global network of evaluation partners that are being brought together throughout 2015.

The group convened to discuss the growing trends in impact investing and other forms of market-oriented investments and to identify how the traditional evaluation approaches, particularly of public sector donors, can be adapted to support the impact assessments of these new investments.

Innovation and flexibility will be needed with evaluators providing regular and visual assessments of impact to assist decision making in investments.

The meeting was organised with support from the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF) and the Department for International Development (DFID)

Earlier in the year we focused on the global development agenda at our meeting on Beyond aid ahead of the agreement of the global Sustainable Development Goals.
