Eval4Action partners in Asia Pacific have launched the regional evaluation strategy in order to advance the use of influential evaluation in the region toward the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals. The strategy was launched during the ongoing EvalVision Asia events.
This is the first regional strategy among Eval4Action partners, emerging as a follow up to the Eval4Action regional consultation held in the Asia Pacific on 25 June 2020. The consultative strategy development process was led by Asia Pacific Evaluation Association, EvalYouth Asia and the Parliamentarians Forum for Development Evaluation. Following the regional consultation, a committee and an advisory group were established comprising of VOPEs, young and emerging evaluators, parliamentarians, evaluation network leaders, business community and development partners that contributed to the strategy development.
The regional evaluation strategy is focused on advancing eight areas: professionalizing evaluation; building partnerships to strengthen evaluation capacity; strengthen community engagement in evaluation; promoting young and emerging evaluators; strengthening VOPEs; engaging parliamentarians for demand and use of evaluation; promoting national evaluation policies and systems and using evaluation in reporting of the SDGs.
The strategy does not belong to any particular organization. Rather any organization or entity can use and implement the strategy based on their resources. Eval4Action regional partners will continue to coordinate partnerships and synergies in the implementation of the strategy.
