Embedded thumbnail for 2013 05 16 SEA Change webinar "M&E Q&A session with the Sustainable Development Policy Institute"

This closed webinar session titled "Monitoring and evaluation Q&A session with the Sustainable Development Policy Institute" was developed in collaboration with the Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI), Islamabad - Pakistan. Upon request we developed a special monitoring and evaluation session in which 15 questions were further looked at and discussed.
The questions ranged from "What skills does an M&E professional need?" and "What are the most useful M&E techniques in humanitarian projects?" to "How to design a logical and systematic monitoring and evaluation system?" and "Differences in use for qualitative and quantitative information". The webinar recording tries to give an answer to those questions, though alternative answers will surely exist. The presentation also provides an overview of resources related to the questions and answers.

A webinar titled "Presenting evaluation findings and evidence-based organizational learning” presented by professional evaluator and communications specialist Glenn O'Neil took place on Friday April 26 2013, 9:00 AM CET (UTC+2), 14:00 Indo-China Time (ICT = UTC+7).

This webinar has been developed based on requests by SEA Change CoP members to learn more about presenting evaluation findings and the pre-requisites for their organization to better learn from evaluation findings.

Embedded thumbnail for 2013 04 03 - SEA Change / GIZ webinar "Climate change adaptation M&E in practice; adaptation made to measure – And what is needed next?"

A webinar collaboratively organized with the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and titled "Climate change adaptation M&E in practice; adaptation made to measure – And what is needed next?" took place on Wednesday April 3 2013, 8:30 AM CET, 1:30 PM Indo-China Time (ICT = UTC+7).

This webinar reviews the development in monitoring and evaluation of adaptation and discusses a number of M&E knowledge needs aspects. It presents a summary and key insights from previous webinars "Pioneers in Adaptation M&E" and "Getting up to speed - Introduction to Adaptation M&E" which are part of an AdaptationCommunity.net discussion series. The most recent GIZ guidance document "Adaptation made to measure" and a new training programme on adaptation M&E are also presented.

Embedded thumbnail for 2013 03 07 - SEA Change / Climate-Eval webinar "Learning from evaluations of climate change and development interventions, and how does this inform policy?"

A two-part webinar took place on March 7 2013, titled "Learning from evaluations of climate change and development interventions, and how does this inform policy?".
The webinars were hosted in two parts, in order to accommodate people in different time zones around the world! The first webinar took place at 9:00 a.m. UTC (4:00 p.m. ICT/Indo-China Time), while the second webinar was planned for 3:00 p.m. UTC (10:00 a.m. EST/Eastern Standard Time).
Reading materials are made available, and also the video of the first webinar will be made accessible over the coming days!

Embedded thumbnail for 2013 02 15 - SEA Change webinar "Monitoring and Evaluation of Climate Change Adaptation Interventions: What can we learn from existing CCA M&E Frameworks and Principles?"

This webinar took place on on Friday February 15 2013, 4:00 PM (16:00) Indo-China Time (ICT = UTC+7) as a warm-up towards the Climate Change M&E panel discussions at the South Asian Evaluation Conclave 2013 taking place in Kathmandu February 26 – March 1. This webinar summarized advantages, disadvantages, applicability and lessons learned from 8 climate change adaptation M&E frameworks, systems and principles documents.

The webinar recording guides you through these documents at a high pace of 4 minutes per publication, informing you about the approach or perspective taken by the authors, how these publications are inter-linked, what their specific applicability is and what can be learned, ie. what are the key issues to be taken into account when monitoring and evaluating climate change adaptation interventions.

Embedded thumbnail for 2012 11 06 - SEA Change webinar "Integrating climate change policies into sustainable development strategy using the Sustainomics framework"

We would like to thank Nobel Peace Prize winner Prof. Mohan Munasinghe, for his webinar called "Integrating climate change policies into sustainable development strategy using the Sustainomics framework". The webinar took place Tuesday 6th of November 2012, 6:00 PM (18:00) Indo-China Time (ICT = UTC+7).
This webinar and the recording available introduces a comprehensive framework to practically address two major global challenges – sustainable development and climate change. The most effective approach is to integrate climate change policies into national sustainable development strategy, using the sustainomics framework. Development problems like poverty are already formidable. Climate change is the ultimate risk multiplier, worsening the other crises. Its worst impacts fall on the poor who are least responsible for the problem, and reducing their vulnerability to such impacts is critical.

Embedded thumbnail for 2012 10 23 - SEA Change webinar "Large Scale Visual Outcomes Modeling of Interventions and its possible application to Climate Change M&E"

We are glad to present to you the webinar recording of a webinar by Dr. Paul Duignan, called "Large Scale Visual Outcomes Modeling of Interventions and its possible application to Climate Change M&E". The webinar took place on Tuesday 23rd of October 2012, 4:00 PM (16:00) Indo-China Time (ICT = UTC+7) and a recording of it can be viewed below.
Large scale visual outcomes modeling pioneered by Dr Paul Duignan is a technique for planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluating interventions. It is based on developing a visual outcomes model (called an Outcomes DoView) which is developed according to a specific set of guidelines. Such models are visually simpler but at the same time, much larger than most traditional intervention logics. Because of the way in which they are developed, the same large scale visual outcomes model can be used for: intervention planning, implementation, monitoring, evaluation, evidence-based practice, risk management and outcomes-focused delegation and contracting. This webinar overviews the approach and looks at its use in Climate Change M&E.
