Much of the discourse to date on MAE has focused on the conceptual aspects. Therefore, this volume aims to take the discussion a little further in understanding what it is, by providing practical experiences on what the concept looks like in practice.

In this volume, the contributions acknowledge the diversity of the continent and the need to understand the cultural context, to appreciate the local knowledge base, to learn from failures, and to use local evaluation tools such as orality and a participatory approach, national evaluation systems and voluntary national reviews, and community-based advocacy platforms called Barazas.
