Read the brief: African Parliamentarians for Evaluation
[Also in French, Portuguese, and Arabic]
"There's no parliament that can work without research and evaluation," comments Hon. Rachel Shebesh, a member of Kenya's Parliament. "If you are working without research and evaluation, you might not be getting your priorities right, know whether your policies are working, or whether this is the development record you want to leave."
A series of videos were released as part of the global campaign, highlighting how evaluation has been used for evidence-based policy making over the course of their mandate at the Parliament of their home country. The five African parliamentarians featured in the series include Hon. Muntaka Mubarak (Ghana), Hon. Roger Nkodo Dang (Cameroon), Hon. Rachel Shebesh (Kenya), Hon. Shitaye Minale (Ethiopia) and Santosh Vinita Kalyan (South Africa).
