I am delighted to welcome you all to the Sri Lanka Parliamentarians Forum for Evaluation Website. SLPFE was launched in Oct 2016 by a group of like- minded parliamentarians to promote evaluation culture within the parliament so that evidence is used to make polices and laws helping us to achieve sustainable development by 2030. This is a national need all parliamentarians should support irrespective of political affiliation and other ties. In a short period of time SLPFE was able to make great progress in institutionalization of evaluation at the parliament. Currently SLPFE is taking the lead in establishing a parliament committee on evaluation, bringing national evaluation bill and strengthening the Parliament Research Unit to produce brief evidence reports. I request all members of parliament and political parties to join hands with this important cause.
