Who We Are
Caribbean Evaluators International is a network of monitoring, evaluation and development professionals focused on advancing evaluative practice in the Caribbean.
We provide thought leadership, professional development, peer learning and contributions to regional and international discourse on M&E from the Caribbean perspective and experiences.
We provide a platform to facilitate sourcing of experts who can serve the M&E needs of the Caribbean.
Members of the network volunteer their time, energy and knowledge to drive CEI’s three Strategic Directions: i) engage and support CEI members and their professional development; ii) create visibility for CEI in the region; iii) advocate for quality M&E practice in the region.
Our Five Core Values
We imagine a Caribbean where M&E is seen as integral to enhance development initiatives and is used by a variety of stakeholders to improve programming and shape policies.
Commissioners of evaluations are familiar with good M&E practice and effectively seek, hire and manage Caribbean evaluator-led M&E contracts. Commissioners treat M&E professionals fairly and ethically.
Caribbean M&E practitioners contribute their knowledge and experience through the CEI platform, and access CEI services to contribute to their professional development. Evaluators speak truth to power and engage in knowledge management and sharing as part of their practice, through CEI and other avenues.
Caribbean evaluators are part of international evaluation teams, as demanded by evaluation commissioners. Caribbean evaluators competently apply a range of ethical methods and approaches to their M&E work.
