CES is proud to take part in the EvalPartners Evidence Matters campaign. As part of the campaign, EvalPartners and EvalSDGs recently worked with partners to support presentations at side events to the UN High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development. Global decision makers and evaluation leaders presented their experience on implementing UNGA A/RES/69/237 [https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/index.php?page=view&type=111&nr=8136&menu=35], a resolution of the UN to build capacity for the evaluation of development activities at the country level, and talked about how country-led evaluations of the SGDs can accelerate progress towards achieving the SDGs.
