As world leaders gather in New York for the United Nations Summit for the Adoption of the Post-2015 Development Agenda this September, evaluation will be part of their discussions.
The outcome document prepared for that Summit – Transforming Our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development – integrates evaluation in the "follow-up and review" section. Therefore the Post-2015 Development Agenda's implementation will be informed by country-led evaluations and data. The outcome document also calls for strengthening national evaluation programs.
Both the integration of evaluation in the Post-2015 Agenda and the strengthening of national evaluation programs have been advocated for by UN Evaluation and EvalPartners. The Canadian Evaluation Society is a memebr of EvalPatners.
