The future of evaluation

I agree with items 1, 2, and 6 in this order:  the demand for evaluators will continue to grow; the number of training programs in evaluation will increase; a national registry of evaluations will be created.

The reason: as traditional economies, such as partly the system in the Philippines, move toward market economies so will demand for transparency and accountability that in turn increases demand for evaluation services. This then increases demand for knowledge and skills in evaluation.

Logic says increased demand for transparency and accountability (especially in public institutions) should lead to creation of a national registry of evaluation findings and reports, but in reality this would depend on so-called political will or level of political maturity. Are owners of information willing to make these available in the public domain? To what extent are they willing to share? What information are they willing to disseminate?
