The role of evaluation for climate action
A post-COP26 dialogue on how evaluative evidence can help deliver the Paris Agreement
Building on the outcomes of the recent UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26), this event aims to facilitate a dialogue on the role that evaluation can play for learning and bringing solutions towards the goals of the Paris Agreement.
Bringing together evaluators and development practitioners, this event will offer a platform to exchange on the shifts that evaluation practices must undertake to help tackle the climate crisis, while also shedding light on initiatives that trigger transformation at all levels of society, with a focus on development cooperation and humanitarian assistance in agriculture and food security.
Following a key note presentation, participants will be invited to join and discuss in parallel sessions where a short presentation will be followed by facilitated discussions. The expected outcome is a collective reflection on the actions and ways forward for advancing the role of evaluation in support to learning and transformation for climate change action.
