Evaluation Week 2016 was inaugurated on May 23 , demonstrating the government’s commitment to promoting evaluation to ensure transparency and accountability and to achieve results that improve public policies and programs.

Evaluation Week involves the public sector, civil society and the academic community so that public policy decision-makers, academics and civil society can share approaches, strategies, methodologies, experiences and results about assessment practices in order to strengthen their capacities in this area and promote the use of evaluation in designing public policies.
