On Friday, December 19, 2014, the United Nations General Assembly adopted—for the first time in its history—a stand-alone resolution supporting the field of evaluation.
The resolution, entitled Capacity Building for the Evaluation of Development Activities at the Country Level, acknowledges 2015 as the International Year of Evaluation and asks each member country to take two landmark steps: (1) strengthen its capacity to conduct evaluations, in accordance with its national policies and priorities, and (2) report back to the UN in 2016 on the progress it has made. This second step is especially important, since it provides a visible, tangible incentive for countries around the world to improve their evaluation capacity over the next two years.
AaEA plans to have a discussion on Thursday, February 26th regarding what it means to be the UN Year of Evaluation.
