Evaluating sustainable development: how the 2030 Agenda can help
IIED Briefing, 4 pages
As countries increasingly commit to sustainable development pathways, they need approaches that assess the sustainability dimension of national policies and interventions, including their contribution to multiple sustainable development aims. Previous briefings have discussed the importance of evaluation in 2030 Agenda national follow-up and review processes. This briefing looks at how the 2030 Agenda and its goals can provide a sustainable development framing for a broader range of national evaluation efforts. Key issues examined are: assessing how well national policies, programmes and projects fit with one another and across the SDGs; the value of the goals in stimulating policy-oriented learning from evaluation; and how aspects of the Agenda can be integrated into evaluation criteria and questions.
Evaluation processes will play a key role in national and global review systems for the Sustainable Development Goals. IIED and EVALSDGs are publishing a series of briefings about evaluation designed to help promote effective conduct and use of evaluation in SDGs implementation, follow-up and review.
