Thursday 20th June, 12:30 to 14:00 



Mr Ziad Moussa – EvalPartners, Co-Chair and IOCE (International Organization for Cooperation in Evaluation), immediate past President

Mr Moussa is a multi-disciplinary development professional with a proven track record in the fields of local governance (design, execution & evaluation of programmes and projects) with an intellectual and professional passion for Evaluation.
Mr. Moussa has a 22 years long working history in various development projects covering the entire Middle East and North Africa countries, the Mediterranean countries involved in the Euro-Med process, as well as significant parts of the African Continent.
He conducted several large-scale evaluations for IFAD, ILO, the European Union and IDRC among others and has been particularly active in promoting the emergence of an “indigenous” M&E culture in MENA.


This cycle of conferences will demonstrate that -if appropriately selected, planned and used- evaluators and commissioners of evaluation have at their disposal some innovative technologies that can help understanding the effects of projects and programmes in hard-to-reach areas, including in fragile contexts.

During this last conference Ziad Moussa will guide us in a reflection on the new challenges that the use of these technologies in an increasing number of fragile areas pose to the traditional ethical standards of the evaluation profession.


Introduction: Mr Valentin Alvarez – DEVCO, Evaluation Manager, Unit 04 ‘Evaluation and Results’ Section 01 Monitoring, Evaluation and Results.
