Paths to the Future of Evaluation The international evaluation community is on its path toward a global evaluation agenda focused on building strong national evaluation systems everywhere, and incorporating the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) in its methods and practice. In the United States, while evaluation is institutionalized in the federal government, it is not consistently incorporated in state and local governments.
Conference Theme: Bridges Subtheme 1: Bridges that connect This sub-theme invites conversations about the connections built, sustained, or strengthened through evaluation and is an opportunity to share experiences about building and traveling bridges to overcome obstacles to evaluation. Evaluators also build bridges to strengthen stakeholder relationships and to help programs reach their goals efficiently and effectively.
Taken from the United Nations Evaluation Group (UNEG) website: Agenda 2030, adopted by the member states of the United Nations in September 2015, calls for new partnerships to work towards a sustainable and equitable future for humanity on our planet. It radically redefines development and asks for transformative change of our societies, our economies and how we interact with nature and our habitat. This is seen as key in the Paris Climate Agreement and the follow-up meetings on climate action.
