Complexity and Evaluation in an Uncertain World Conference
Australia and the broader global community face messy, wicked and new types of social, environmental, economic and political challenges. The interests and power of various actors engaged in addressing these challenges may vary but what they have in common is that they need to measure and assess the impact of their efforts.
How do we assess the progress being made towards addressing these issues? How do we adjust and adapt our efforts in the light of changing circumstances and social learning? What kind of institutional environments support and encourage the forms of evaluation and learning that allow agencies to respond to uncertainty and complexity?
