Launch of EVALSDGs Initiative

The EvalPartners Global Evaluation Forum II was held in Kathmandu, Nepal on 23 and 24 November 2015 in the context of the Global Evaluation Week, to further clarify the “what” and “how” of the Global Evaluation Agenda 2016-2020 “EvalAgenda2020”). Over 130 participants from VOPEs, national governments, parliaments, civil society organizations, young & emerging evaluators, UN agencies and funders met first to review, discuss, and endorse the draft EvalAgenda2020, then to plan concrete steps to strengthen (a) the enabling environment, (b) institutional capacities, and (c) individual capabilities for evaluation, plus (d) the interlinkages among these three components.
In small-group working sessions, participants developed goals and specific action plans for seven new EvalPartners initiatives: (1) EvalSDGs (focusing on the 17 new Sustainable Development Goals for 2030), (2) EvalYouth, (3) EvalGender+, (4) EvalIndigenous, (5) the Global Parliamentarians Forum for Evaluation, (6) the professionalization of evaluation, and (7) support to VOPEs around the world.
