CESBC International Development Evaluation
What the event is about
Welcome to an evening to meet other professionals and students interested in the realms of international development and evaluation! Join us for an "Un-Workshop" facilitated by Rebecca Mellett who will share stories, lead discussions and get people to think through key international development and evaluation topics and issues bought forward by participants.
The event is jointly hosted by the British Columbia Canadian Evaluation Society (CESBC) and British Columbia Council for International Cooperation (BCCIC) island chapters.
