Within the EvalPartners initiative, an International EvalPartners Forum was organized on 3-6 December 2012 in Chiang Mai, Thailand, with the aim of strengthening evaluation capacities of Civil Society Organizations (CSO) in general, and Voluntary Organizations for Professional Evaluation (VOPEs) in particular. The Forum facilitated the sharing of good practice and lessons learned by VOPEs and others engaged in Evaluation Capacity Development (ECD), while identifying EvalPartners priorities to be implemented in 2013. More than 80 participants from all over the world attended the Forum. These include the Presidents/Chairs of all Regional and Major VOPEs and more than 30+ national VOPEs, as well as high-level representatives from bilateral (including the Government of Finland, Switzerland, USA and Australia) and International Organizations, such the WB Vice President and IEG Director General, UNEG Chair, Directors of Evaluation Offices of UNICEF, UNDP and UN Women, among others.
