About Pakistan Evaluation Association
Pakistan Evaluation Association (PEA) is an association to promote evaluation across Pakistan at national and sub national levels. PEA, as a professional body, promotes the culture of Evaluation in government and development sector organizations.
The existence and establishment of PEA came into being to fill the gap with adoption and inculcation of international evaluation standards among evaluators. Subsequently, to prepare and launch young and emerging evaluators at the mainstream, those who receive minimal education and guidance on the subject from their respective academic institutions.
Being an active Voluntary Organization Promoting Evaluation (VOPE), in a very small tenure PEA established itself well at the national level. Being one of the most active evaluation associations in the country and region, PEA established and created its presence at various regional and global events in a short span of time.
At PEA, we believe that evaluation can contribute into the development of country. We advocate, aware and provide sustainable solutions to the government and private sector actors involved and engaged in development related interventions in the country.
