Shaping M&E for a Sustainable Future

The South African Monitoring and Evaluation Association (SAMEA) helds its 7th biennial conference in Johannesburg, Gauteng. The 7th Biennial SAMEA Conference 2019 will be the most important biennial gathering of the South African Monitoring & Evaluation community and will bring together M&E leaders and practitioners from the public, private and development spheres. The conference will provide a learning and knowledge sharing opportunity about:

  • Better Evidence for Public Policy and Implementation: focuses on how public sector institutions use evidence in policy and decision-making to deliver better outcomes for society.

  • MERL Tech: provides a platform for delegates to discuss the influence of technology on how practitioners design M&E studies, collect data, analyse information, report on and visualise data.

  • Investing for Impact: explores the role of M&E in impact investing and corporate social investment programmes.

  • Climate Change and Building Resilience: provides an opportunity to discuss how M&E helps us to assess implications of climate change on individuals, communities and organisations and through strong evidence contributes to building resilience.

  • M&E and Non-Profits: draws lessons from how M&E is carried out in the non-profit sector and how it enables learning, how it shapes current practice and how it is adapting to changes brought about by technology, donor demands and communities’ needs.

  • M&E Skills in a Changing World: examines the changing skills requirements for the M&E profession in the 21st century and discusses the evolving roles of practitioners.
