What is the Conference About?
Energy program evaluation occurs within a context of ever-changing political, economic, and social environments. These changes affect program and evaluation objectives, methods, and level of oversight. For this conference, papers have been selected using well-known energy program evaluation methods to address related policy topics and added in a good sprinkling of programs addressing emerging issues and methods to prepare us for the future. In this United Nations International Year of Evaluation, IEPEC’s theme is Broadening our Horizons.
