What? International Program for Development Evaluation Training

When? July 6 - July 26, 2020

Where? Bern, Switzerland

The International Program for Development Evaluation Training (IPDET) is an executive evaluation training, first implemented in 2001 as a joint collaboration between the Independent Evaluation Group (IEG) of the World Bank Group, and University of Bern, Switzerland. Until 2016, more than 3.500 participants from 125 countries came to IPDET from government and nongovernmental organizations, bilateral and multilateral development agencies, research institutes, universities, and the private sector.

IPDET refers to evaluators with none or only few prior knowledge and experience in evaluation, as well as experienced evaluators, commissioners, decision makers, and policy makers from NGOs, Ministries/Public Administration Institutions, bi- and multilateral development partners, Think Tanks, Universities, private firms, as well as parliamentarians from all over the world, especially from developing countries.

Although the context of IPDET is development evaluation, it is not limited to that perspective as most of the participants work in their countries in different organizations in different positions in the field of evaluation; some have already quite a lot of experience and knowledge in evaluation, some have none.

In 2019 the program will be conducted in 3 weeks. First week Core Course (July 6 - 10, 2020), followed by two weeks of workshops (July 13 - July 24, 2020).
