Background to the Peregrine Discussion Group

The Peregrine Discussion Group was initially known as the ‘Pelican Initiative’ (Platform for Evidence-based Learning & Communication for Social Change). Pelican was started in 2004, by the European Centre for Development Policy Management (ECDPM). In June 2020, due to changed priorities of ECDPM’s strategy, BetterEvaluation ( took over the moderation of the group under the new name of ‘Peregrine Discussion Group for Better Evaluation’.
