Evaluation to connect national priorities with the SDGs

This ‘real life’ introduction to evaluating progress on the 2030 Agenda and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is based on emerging country experience from North and South, as well as wider past learning on sustainable development evaluation. Rather than a one-size-fits-all manual, this guide seeks to support evaluation commissioners, managers and professional evaluators to create tailored plans and approaches to SDG evaluation. It argues that a successful evaluation must be both built around existing national context and underpinned by the principles of the 2030 Agenda.

To support customised local or national journeys towards sustainable development, this guide:

• Lays out the main steps involved in scoping, designing and conducting an SDG evaluation

• Discusses the ways in which SDG evaluation processes and results can be used to support national progress on sustainable development

• Identifies key SDG evaluation characteristics and approaches, and

• Looks at how SDG evaluation can be integrated into national monitoring and evaluation systems.
