Why Join?

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’.


To allow members to have better control over their email preferences, we have created an overarching ‘Peregrine’ community, and three subgroups for discussion, events and jobs. New members will be added to all subgroups and then can opt-out or control email preferences of these individually (see instructions in the user guide).
