The AfrEA International Conference happens each year and is organised by the Africa Evaluation Association. This year 2017, 8th AfrEA International Conference will be held in Kampala Uganda at Munyonyo Common Wealth Resort and aims at promoting exchange between researchers, academia, emerging evaluators and practitioners on demand and supply of credible evaluative evidence in support of the SDGs in Africa. It will also build capacity to design, manage and use evaluations to help Governments achieve their national and international development agendas, particularly around the SDGs and the Africa2063 Agenda.
In line with the above objectives, Lida Africa submitted a comprehensive Workshop Paper that was warmly accepted entitled “Strengthening M&E Data Management and Analysis capacity Using Microsoft Excel” under the ” Made in Africa Evaluation Strand”

On Saturday 25th, March 2017, Lida Africa is proud to officially pass on the graduates from the February 2017 Executive Training Programs intake who undertook Advanced level training in data management and analysis using Advanced MS EXCEL and SPSS.
The training which was warmly received by the public though the New vision advert (30th Jan 2017, page 100) and online social media platforms has been one of the most successful events held by Lida Africa. Over 25 participants were attracted from corners of Uganda and South Sudan. Each participant had to complete an Online Application Form.
Participants included managers, researchers from international development organizations, foundations, governments and non-governmental organizations, as well as trained M&E professionals. As usual, more participants were attracted to Advanced Excel compared to SPSS due to the course being one of Uganda’s most innovative practical courses.
These programs provided a thorough understanding of data management process, and pragmatic step-by-steps for conducting data analysis and development of databases and data collection. Participants also imparted with insights on the importance of data collection, key performance indicators and data quality control and assurance.
