The 3rd South African Monitoring and Evaluation Association (SAMEA) conference will take place in Johannesburg at Emperors Palace, Gauteng, 05-09 September 2011. The conference will contribute towards the fulfillment of the SAMEA mission of cultivating a vibrant community that supports, guides and strengthens the development of monitoring and evaluation in South Africa.

Conference Theme – M&E 4 Outcomes: Answering the 'So What?' Question

  • Debate the purpose and power of evaluation for attaining outcomes

  •  Showcase exemplary evaluations making a difference to programmes

  • Debate experience in evaluation in Africa particularly so we can learn from each other to avoid re-inventing the wheel

  • Exchange expertise in attaining outcomes through evaluation

It is proposed that within this broad theme, the focus will be on the utilization of M&E practices and findings in programme development, management and implementation, knowledge management and learning within organizations and programmes, the challenges of building evaluation systems for tiered, multi-sectoral and multi-partnered programmes, and building evaluation capacity.

Delegate Profile & Demographics

Practitioners and users of M&E from government, the private sector, academics, trainers and the non-governmental sector will attend. Based on the success of the 1st SAMEA conference held in 2007, and using this as a guideline, it is expected that approximately 500 participants will attend.
