Book Launch: Information and Communication Technologies for Development Evaluation


The Independent Office of Evaluation of IFAD (IOE) is organizing the launch of a new book on Information and Communication Technologies for Development Evaluation. The book gives insights into the implications of new and emerging technologies in development evaluation and particularly the added challenges of charting progress towards Agenda 2030.

The event will be held at IFAD HQ in Rome on 7 October 2019 from 9:3011:00 (Central Europe Time). It will foster international dialogue and exchange of knowledge on this topic through a panel discussion on "Innovative Solutions for Evidence-driven Development".

The book is the latest issue of Routledge Studies in Development Economics, and was edited by Oscar Garcia, Director, IOE, and Prashanth Kotturi, Evaluation Analyst, IOE. It presents important contributions made by a team of expert practitioners as the result of an international conference on this topic that IFAD hosted in 2017.
