SHIPDET Core Course Overview

Join us in Shanghai for SHIPDET 2016 Core Course - a one week course on the fundamental issues of monitoring and evaluation (M&E). Combining both attention to M&E theory and practical applications of the theory, the participants completing the course will gain knowledge and experience on M&E tools, techniques, and resources needed for planning, organizing, and/or managing programs and projects.

Program Objectives

The program is designed to promote evaluation capacity building, especially among participants working in Asian development contexts. Upon completing the course, the participants should benefit from the following:

  • Improved knowledge of monitoring and evaluation approaches and method
  • Understanding of how to build and use evaluation systems that are adaptable to local situations, particularly in Asian developing countries
  • Connections to other development evaluation practitioners
  • Sharing of knowledge and experiences in development evaluation

History of SHIPDET Program

Strengthening results-based monitoring and evaluation (M&E) and improving development performance are increasingly becoming a focus of world attention. The Chinese government attaches great importance to performance evaluation. One of the major challenges facing almost all developing countries is the lack of capacity to monitor and evaluate how effectively public funds are being used. To address these challenges and to keep pace with international trends, in early 2007, the Chinese Ministry of Finance, the World Bank Group, the Asian Development Bank and the Asia-Pacific Finance and Development Center (Predecessor of AFDI) jointly launched the Shanghai International Program for Development Evaluation Training (SHIPDET).

SHIPDET is committed to promoting development evaluation capacity building in China and other Asian developing countries through a range of activities, such as training workshops, research, and network building. SHIPDET is a key feature of AFDI’s work on evaluation capacity development through its partnership with CLEAR – Regional Centers for Learning on Evaluation and Results.

AFDI is responsible for SHIPDET’s daily operations. The first SHIPDET workshop, held at the Shanghai National Accounting Institute (SNAI) in 2007, was commended by the agencies involved for achieving its goals. Chinese then Vice-Minister of Finance Li Yong remarked, “This workshop was a huge success! Performance evaluation will definitely become an important concept in China’s economic development. Continuous efforts should be made to promote performance evaluation.”

Each year, SHIPDET conducts workshops in the Spring and Fall. The Spring workshop is designed for Chinese participants, primarily governmental officials responsible for development evaluation from the Ministry of Finance, the National Audit Office, the National Bureau of Statistics, and the State-owned Assets Supervision Administration Commission. The Fall workshop is designed for international participants, primarily officials responsible for development evaluation from governmental departments of Asian developing countries and representatives of bilateral and multilateral development agencies. SHIPDET trains about 120 participants annually. SHIPDET strives to include the following into its training programs:

  • SHIPDET engages internationally-recognized experts as faculty, to provide the most modern theories and practical approaches in development performance evaluation.
  • SHIPDET workshops focus on the application of international best practices, yet ties these to the local situations in Asian developing countries.
  • In delivering its training, SHIPDET strives to utilize the most modern and effective materials and methods, including video conferences, case studies and field studies.
  • Consistent with SHIPDET’s goal of strengthening results-based management, systematic performance evaluation is an integral part of the training program in order to maximize training effectiveness.
