Feed the Future to Hold Consultative Knowledge Management Workshop with Stakeholders

Under Feed the Future, the U.S. Government is paying special attention to impact evaluation as a monitoring and evaluation tool.

Rigorous impact evaluation generates quality information on new or untested approaches to development that can be used in the project design process. Approximately 25-35 impact evaluations will be completed under Feed the Future.

On June 27, 2011, a consultative meeting with Feed the Future stakeholders brought together U.S. Government agencies, universities, research centers, NGOs, think tanks, and the private sector to explore research gaps and best practices for designing impact evaluations. That meeting helped to finalize the Feed the Future Learning Agenda, which includes key evaluation questions related to the Feed the Future Results Framework.

On January 30, 2012, a second consultation meeting will take place to elicit input from Feed the Future stakeholders on the impact evaluation process and results. The objective of this meeting is to promote collaboration on the development of a knowledge management strategy that will foster greater application of learning. This event is part of a series of consultative meetings that will take place to promote best practices in the evaluation process.
