Global Evaluation Agenda 2016-2020

On:

Dear colleagues,

It is our great pleasure and pride to present you the Global Evaluation Agenda (GEA) 2016-2020 which is the first ever long term global vision for evaluation. The GEA has been developed by many colleagues around the globe, working together

under the EvalPartners umbrella. The discussions around evaluation capacities and capabilities intensified during the Year of Evaluation in 2015, which was celebrated at over 92 events around the world. The Year of Evaluation culminated

in a historic global gathering hosted by the Parliament of Nepal in Kathmandu where the GEA was launched and endorsed by various stakeholders including Governments, Parliaments, civil society and academia, with great energy and good humour, in an atmosphere of global solidarity and partnership.

We would like to highlight the participatory nature of the Global Evaluation Agenda, not only in the way in which it was developed through consultation with the global evaluation community, but also in the way in which we would like to see it being implemented.

We invite any individual, any organization, any government or any interested party to contribute to implementation of the GEA by undertaking relevant initiatives wherever they live or work. By working together,

wherever we may be, we can advance knowledge, learning and accountability in the journey towards healthier and happier lives, social justice and a safer planet for all.

In this way, we hope to see widespread ownership of the agenda – and indeed, we invite you to play your part, too. We ask you to decide: “which bite of the evaluation apple will you take?”

As an evaluator, a commissioner of evaluations, a manager, a government official, or as a leader or perhaps as a Parliamentarian, we believe you will wish to become familiar with the content of the Agenda so that you can not only use

evaluation to support your work, but also work to strengthen evaluation. Students, trainers, teachers and academicians can also play a key role in sharing and using the agenda in their institutions. We hope the agenda will be widely shared, discussed and – most importantly – put into action.

Evaluating SDGs with an equity-focused and gender-responsive lens: Follow the High Level Forum Online

On:

no one left behind

No one left behind.Evaluating SDGs with an equity-focused and gender-responsive lens.                 

A strong call for review and follow-up mechanisms that will “leave no one behind”

With the launch of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in 2015, the review of national-level implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, the adoption of the UN General Assembly Resolution on evaluation capacity building (A/RES/69/237) and the celebration of 2015 International Year of Evaluation, as well as the World Humanitarian Summit taking place in May 2016, the global community has a significant opportunity to continue bringing evaluation to the forefront of the new sustainable development goals.

The new 2030 Agenda shapes the sustainable and equitable development discourse and action for the next 15 years. To meet the central imperative of ‘leaving no one behind’, the SDG’s follow-up and review mechanism aims to monitor and evaluate progress for all.

In line with the SDG follow-up and review mechanism, the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action also calls for strengthening accountability mechanisms for gender equality, including of national gender equality mechanisms, national human rights institutions and regulatory bodies.

Towards a framework to evaluate SDGs with an equity-focused and gender responsive lens

In the last decade, the global evaluation community has been developing evaluation approaches that are equity-focused and gender-responsive4. With the SDG calling for “leaving no one behind”, a new opportunity (and challenge) is raising to strengthen even further national evaluation capacities to evaluate localized SDGs and national development policies/strategies with an equity-focused and gender-responsive lens.

In this context, this event seeks to start a multi-stakeholders dialogue to develop an evaluation framework that will facilitate the above-mentioned national evaluation capacity processes. The event is composed of two parts:

  • a High-Level Event to engage delegates from member states, international organizations and CSOs in a global discussion to identify strategies for building an enabling environment to evaluate the SDGs with equity-focused and gender-responsive lens;
  • a Technical event to start the process of establishing a common framework to evaluation SDGs with equity-focused and gender-responsive lens. It will include sessions looking at the relevance of the new metrics and agreed indicators; understanding the complexity of SDGs and the power of partnerships; discussing strategies to strengthen gender responsiveness of national Evaluation systems, as well as the demand for and use of evaluation with an equity-focused and gender responsive lens in policy making.

On the High Level Panel the GPFE has an active participation. Check how to follow the discussion online here.
