In order to reach wider clients and beneficiaries, and accelerate the rate of capacity development, it is the centre’s strategy to use regional partners with both common values and the capacity to co-deliver on various interventions. These partners consists of both co-delivery partners and partners facilitating knowledge sharing and learning of CLEAR-AA’s products and service offerings.


The African Evaluation Association (AfrEA) was founded in 1999, in response to Africa’s growing appeal for advocacy, information sharing and advanced capacity building in evaluation. The organisation’s chief focus was to counter limited evaluation opportunities by building strategic bridges for African evaluators to connect, network and share experiences. 


Founded in March 2014, the objective of APNODE is to enhance the capacity of African Parliamentarians to improve their oversight, policy making, and national decision making by ensuring it is evidence-based. The network also works to bridge the gap between evaluators (who provide impartial evidence) and parliamentarians; encourage parliamentarians to institutionalize evaluations; and support them in ensuring that evaluations conducted at country level are responsive to the needs of women and vulnerable groups.



The Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) was established in 1961 as a joint Ghana Government/United Nations (UN) special fund project. Originally named the Institute of Public Administration, it was set up as one of the key strategic institutions to develop the public administrative system, to provide civil servants with administrative and professional competence, and to plan and administer national, regional and local services. 


The DPME has a government-wide role in M&E, assessing management performance, supporting the national evaluation system, and developing planning and monitoring capacity. All the department’s efforts are aimed at addressing the triple challenges of unemployment, poverty, and inequality. Key focus areas and mandates include the National Development Plan and the five-year implementation plan, the Medium Term Strategic Framework. Using tools such as feedback from citizens, the department monitors implementation of these plans and attempts to identify and resolve problems.


“SAMEA strives to cultivate a vibrant community that will support, guide and strengthen the development of monitoring and evaluation (M&E) as an important discipline, profession and instrument for empowerment and accountability in South Africa.” 


Established in 1946, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) promotes the rights and wellbeing of every child, in everything we do. Together with our partners, we translate that commitment into practical action, focusing special effort on reaching the most vulnerable and excluded children, to the benefit of all children, everywhere.
