AfrEA engaged previous, existing and potential Strand sponsors to promote ownership and secure funding for the 8th AfrEA International Conference to be held in Kampala, Uganda in March 2017.

The Conference offers Strand sponsors an opportunity to share new approaches and ideas as well as practical tools for development evaluation, build capacity among African evaluators, and establish new relationships with a wide pool of evaluation professionals.
