The Ghana Monitoring and Evaluation Forum (GMEF) is Ghana’s only, formal Voluntary Organization for Professional Evaluators (VOPE). As a VOPE, GMEF undertakes capacity building and advocacy on M&E through the organization of evaluation events such as conferences, workshops and forums. Established in 2008 to promote evidence-based policy making at all levels in Ghana, GMEF has grown to become a network of over 470 public-spirited individuals who seek to meet the need for improved M&E through the promotion of open dialogue around M&E issues. This is with a view to positively influencing the development opportunities of our time with new insights, perspectives and tools.
GMEF’s mission is to promote and enable the use of monitoring and evaluation in programme implementation and policy planning.
