The QED Group (QED) is pleased to announce its first Development Innovation Challenge. Fully detailed in the announcement document below, this challenge seeks applications from individual international development practitioners across Asia that would like to share innovative methods and approaches that they have applied to improve programmatic results through effective and efficient monitoring and evaluation, organizational learning, and adaptive management.
QED is running this challenge to identify, promote, and share creative, innovative and cutting-edge methods and approaches that individual practitioners in Asia have applied to enhance the performance of international development programs.
QED will sponsor three (3) winners to attend an event of regional and/or international standing (such as the Community of Evaluators South Asia Conclave in 2017) up to $1,500 to cover transportation, hotel, and registration fees. In addition, the winners will have an opportunity to have their work showcased on the QED website and present in an online webinar.
The innovative approaches could have been applied in any country, but should produce a benefit that is replicable and scalable to other programs worldwide. Specifically, we are looking for approaches in the following categories:
Those who are interested in submitting an innovation to this challenge, please apply by May 15 and send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to an exciting and informative challenge that will connect practitioners across Asia.
