In Anglophone Africa, CLEAR works to develop and promote the use of evaluation in evidence-based policy-making to promote development. We believe that a strong grounding in the local context, and a learning-through-practice approach, will drive indigenisation and innovation in the field of evaluation. We work to support systems of evaluation across the region by strengthening the supply and demand for evaluation simultaneously. We draw on global and regional best practices, and generate knowledge that contributes to a community of scholars and practitioners.
The Clear Anglophone Africa Centre was established in 2011 as one of six global centres who are at the forefront of building knowledge on ‘how to’ and ‘what works’ in evaluation capacity development in contextually-relevant ways across the globe. The CLEAR-AA is housed at the Wits School of Governance, within the University of Witwatersrand in South Africa. The Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration is part of the partnership and delivers CLEAR-AA programming to West Africa, in close collaboration with the CLEAR Francophone Africa centre.
Vision: CLEAR-AA works to develop and promote the use of evaluation in evidence based policy making to accelerate equitable development across Anglophone Africa.
