Invitation to a consultation on the evaluation of Danida support to development research 

Dear colleagues,


The Evaluation, Learning and Quality department (ELK) of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in collaboration with FCG-Sweden, is pleased to invite you to a consultation meeting for a discussion of the findings and recommendations of an evaluation of Danida support to development research (2008-18).


The meeting will be held on Monday 3rd February 2020, from 13.00 to 16.00 in Sal III at Eigtveds Pakhus, Asiatisk Plads 2, 1448 Copenhagen K.


The main purpose of the discussion is to gather feedback and observations on the key issues in development research that have been identified by the evaluation team and outlined in the form of preliminary draft findings and recommendations. A summary of these is attached.


An agenda for the meeting is being prepared. It will include a presentation of the outcomes of the evaluation by the team leader from FCG-Sweden, Zenda Ofir. A commission that has overseen the work of the evaluation team will also be represented at the meeting by Poul Engberg-Pedersen (chair). After the meeting the consultants will prepare the final report of the evaluation for subsequent publication.


Please confirm your participation by sending an e-mail to: by Monday 27th January 2020.


We very much look forward to your contributions to the debate on the way forward for providing support to development research.


Happy New Year!
