The Forum was organized by EvalPartners, together with the International Organization for Cooperation in Evaluation (IOCE), the United Nations Evaluation Group (UNEG), the Global Parliamentarians Forum for Evaluation, the Kyrgyz M&E Network, and the Eurasian Evaluation Network from April 26 to 28, 2017. The Parliament of the Kyrgyz Republic and the Government of Kyrgyz Republic were strong partners of the event.

The third Global Evaluation Forum brought together some 150 delegates including government representatives, parliamentarians, development partners, foundations, the private sector, universities, the civil society and the evaluation community to review progress of the EvalAgenda2020, particularly in support of the SDGs, and to map out productive partnerships for the future.

The theme of the Third Global Forum was “Transforming our world through evaluation: engagement and partnerships for the better world we want”. EvalPartners and its Networks are actively engaging in operationalizing the EvalAgenda2020 in line with the 2030 SDGs. The Global Forum was a platform to review progress made 17 months after the launch of EvalAgenda 2020. This initial period was crucial in preparing stakeholders (including government partners, parliamentarians, the evaluation community, the civil society, and development partners) in using the EvalAgenda2020 for evaluation capacity building. Stock-taking helped celebrate accomplishments, draw lessons learned, identify good practices, explore fruitful collaborations, raise awareness of responsibilities, and plan for more results in coming years.
