The EvalAgenda2020 has just been published as the first ever long term global vision for evaluation. It was developed in the midst of EvalYear 2015 by many evaluation colleagues around the globe, working together under the EvalPartners umbrella. EvalPartners is the global movement to strengthen national evaluation capacities, and the Canadian Evaluation Society is one of its core partners.
The Agenda is based on the following vision: "... evaluation is an integral part of all efforts by governments, civil society, and the private sector to improve the lives and conditions of all citizens. Our vision is that high-quality and value-driven evaluation can improve the design and implementation of these efforts, track their progress, make mid-course corrections and assess final outcomes and impacts with a view to social learning across policies, programs and initiatives."
The Agenda addresses priorities for evaluation during the first five years of the 15-year period on which focus the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It sets out vision statements for each key evaluation partners, which are institutions, individuals and users.
An executive summary of the EvalAgenda2020 is available on the CES Website. All the material is available in English only.
