The annual ICT4D Conferences have proven to be an invaluable opportunity for NGOs, private sector organizations, universities, governmental agencies and foundations to share their experience in using ICT to increase the impact of development programs and to learn from each other.  In 2016, 715 individuals from 76 countries and 301 private sector and public sector and civil society explored the ways to harness the full power of digital solutions to achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.  Our thanks to Accenture, Catholic Relief Services, Esri, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, iMerit Technology Services, Inmarsat, IS Solutions, Making All Voices Count, Mercy Corps, Microsoft, NetHope, Oxfam, Pandexio, Qualcom Wireless Reach, RTI International, SimbaNet and World Vision for making that possible.

Limited Capacity filling up

CRS launched an ICT4D MEAL platform named as "eValuate" in FY14 in hopes of achieving

- Alignment with CRS's strategy - MEAL & ICT core competencies / Strategic Initiative 2.8
- One agency - standard data availability
- Expected by donors and competitive edge for funding
- Improves data collection and reporting efficiency
- Reduces data and reporting errors
- Increases transparency and accountability
- Improves decision making and service delivery
- Distinguishes CRS in the NGO and donor communities

We are now in the third year of rolling out eValuate. It is currently in various stages of deployment across 27 projects in 20 countries. We'd like to use this time to share our experience and story. In our story we will be covering:

- Why did CRS need eValuate?
- What is eValuate?
- Coverage of eValuate?
- eValuate - Impact on MEAL globally
- Our bumps and bruises
- Our plan
- Testimonies

We'll conclude our talk with a short demonstration of how eValuate revolutionized Seed Fairs.
