CECAN Seminar - Evaluation in follow up and review processes of the SDGs: future vision and current practice.

Wednesday 6th Dec 2017, 1-2pm - BEIS, 1 Victoria Street, London, SW1H 0ET

About the seminar:

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development adopted by the United Nations in 2015 puts follow-up and review processes at the heart of global and national efforts to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It says the follow-up and review processes will be informed by country-led evaluations and data which is high-quality, accessible, timely and reliable.

Stefano D’Errico, will be talking about the role and current use of evaluation in assessing the SDGs and will present findings from research conducted by IIED and EVALSDGs on M&E processes reported by the Voluntary National Reviews submitted by  64 countries to the High Level Political Forum in 2016 and 2017.

CECAN Webinar - Complexity theory and “invisible mechanisms”: Implications for methods and commissioning

Wednesday 31st January 2018, 09:00 - 10:00 UK

Speaker: Dr Gill Westhorp, Charles Darwin University Australia

About the webinar:

This presentation continues the CECAN series on realist research and evaluation and their use in relation to complexity. It focuses on the issue of causation. Causation is of critical interest to policy and program authors, who seek to cause (or steer) change; to evaluators who seek to attribute outcomes to interventions, and to researchers who seek to understand particular aspects of the operations of complex systems.
