The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is an unprecedented global endeavour that requires transformative leadership and a bold new approach. The Agenda recognizes the critical role of evaluation in informing global and national leaders of the best way to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and will require efforts to further strengthen evaluation practices, in developing and developed countries alike. The aspirational nature and interconnectedness of many of the Agenda’s goals will require those conducting and commissioning evaluations to have a thorough understanding of the Agenda and its goals, targets and indicator framework; different approaches to evaluation, such as performance-based v. system-based approaches; as well as equity and human-rights based approaches.
The Evaluation and the 2030 Agenda course is a free, moderated course delivered jointly by EvalSDGs and the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR).
Application deadline: 30 August
