Welcome to Evaluation for Development

I am a South African scientist and, since 2000, full-time international evaluation specialist. I work where development, knowledge and evaluation intersect. My commitment: I evaluate for the development of the Global South. In this blog I address issues of interest to all those who share this commitment. All countries develop, but it is in the Global South where it is most difficult and important to sustain a positive development trajectory. It is here where the vibrancy and resilience of societies and ecosystems are most inspirational, and where nature is both most awe-inspiring and most devastating. It is here where highly credible, innovative, useful evaluation can make the greatest difference.
