EvalYouth MENA, the Middle East and North Africa regional EvalYouth chapter of the EvalYouth Global Network, was founded during the 6th EvalMENA General Assembly and Evaluation Conference in Amman (2017), inviting Young and Emerging Evaluators (YEEs) from the region to join. Formulating a strong partnership with UNFPA Arab States Regional Office (UNFPA-ASRO) since initiating the chapter, both EvalYouth MENA and UNFPA ASRO worked on 1) organizing​ ​​pre-conference professional development workshops for young evaluators from the region, 2) supporting the participation of several young and emerging evaluators from all around the region to attend the Conference and be active members of its proceedings and organization, and most importantly, 3) organizing the “Evaluation Winter School for Young and Emerging Evaluators in Arab States.”
