Book Launch: Information and Communication Technologies for Development Evaluation – New York

Overview

Book Launch: Information and Communication Technologies for Development Evaluation – New York

The United Nations are hosting the launch event of the new book “Information and Communication Technologies for Development Evaluation”. The book gives insights into the implications of new and emerging technologies in development evaluation and particularly the challenges of charting progress towards Agenda 2030.

The book is the latest issue of Routledge Studies in Development Economics, and was edited by Oscar Garcia, Director, IOE, and Prashanth Kotturi, Evaluation Analyst, IOE. It presents important contributions made by a team of expert practitioners as the result of an international conference on this topic that IFAD hosted in 2017. 

The event will be held on Thursday, 24 October 2019 at the United Nations Headquarters’ Dag Hammarskjöld Library in New York from 15:00 to 16:00 (Eastern Standard Time). It will foster international dialogue and exchange of knowledge through a panel discussion on innovative solutions for evidence-driven development.
