The initiative brings together a community with multiple capacities in order to reflect, plan and activate projects that enable the country’s transition towards a regenerative paradigm. Join us as we hear about this initiative’s transformative vision, their comprehensive delta of regenerative projects and their commitment to work so that life can evolve in free, healthy and fair conditions.

Celebrate 10+ Years of Developmental Evaluation – contribute to the first-ever index of USAID DEs
It’s been just over 10 years since the launch of Dr. Patton’s landmark book, Developmental Evaluation. Developmental Evaluation (DE) has come a long way since then, and as such we are excited to share an initiative by Social Impact and their USAID/Indonesia DE Jalin team to create an index of all DEs conducted at USAID since 2010.
SI and DE Jalin recently partnered with Blue Marble Evaluation to launch their Remote DE Guide. When asking participants what more they wanted to learn about DE, 71% of respondents (many of whom were USAID staff) asked, “Is there is a comprehensive list or study of all DEs ever implemented?” Not yet – which is why Social Impact is asking for your help.
If you or anyone you know has participated in a USAID DE (as an evaluator, manager, implementer, or other stakeholder), consider responding to their brief survey here.
SI and DE Jalin also encourage you to share the survey with those in your networks who may have DE experience. SI and DE Jalin look forward to sharing the brief results with Blue Marble and other like-minded groups in the hopes of advancing future DE planning and implementation.
Please submit your responses by Friday, May 21st . For any questions on the survey, please contact Dom Margiotta.
Michael Quinn Patton has just published an article in the American Journal of Evaluation that features a Blue Marble Evaluation perspective on environmental justice.

Using origin stories from a jolly group of evaluation co-conspirators, this multi-racial/ethnic panel will demonstrate how colonization impacts the field through a critical data visualization lens. Contemporary views of historical data visualization tend to trace back to a few iconic visuals tied to European wars and conquests. Register here.
