Parliamentarians for Evaluation Campaign: Week 2

On:

It is our great pleasure to announce the release of videos from parliamentarians under the “Parliamentarians for Evaluation” campaign. The Global Parliamentarians Forum for Evaluation (GPFE) initiated the campaign inviting parliamentarians around the world to advocate for evaluation in the context of Sustainable Development Goals (Agenda 2030) ensuring “No one left behind” in line with the Global Evaluation Agenda 2016-2020 (EvalAgenda 2020). Parliamentarians’ advocacy messages indeed represent an invaluable resource for increasing the quality of demand and use of evaluation work. The campaign aims to strengthen an enabling environment and to create an archive of shared knowledge for the global evaluation community. Furthermore, the campaign highlights the importance of equity focused and gender responsive evaluation.

With great success of holding the historical Global EvalYear Event at the Parliament of Nepal and launch of the Global Parliamentarians Forum for Evaluation, parliamentarians’ role in promoting evaluation culture has become more prominent. Parliamentarians with support from VOPE leaders, government officials, UN agencies, international organizations, private sector and donors are becoming strong advocates for evaluation. The Sustainable Development Goals and the Global Evaluation Agenda 2016-2020 reveal the need for redoubled efforts on advocacy for evaluation.

Since its launch on 23 May, the GPFE is releasing one video per week, which delivers messages from parliamentarians to ensure that the voices of evaluation advocates are heard. Today, the second video of this global campaign is from Hon. Kabir Hashim, Minister and Member of Parliament from Sri Lanka, who talks about his experience as a Parliamentarian and the value of evidence-based data and evaluation to report the results of policies in Sri Lanka.

In parallel, we specially invite Voluntary Organizations for Professional Evaluation (VOPEs) and evaluation professionals to engage parliamentarians in the campaign. Please contact Jérôme Gandin, Campaign Manager jeromegandin@yahoo.it for personalized invitations to parliamentarians and the campaign team for further support. For further information about the GPFE, please contact Ada Ocampo, aocampo@unicef.org or Asela Kalugampitiya aselakalugampitiya@yahoo.ie.
