Competition for innovative M&E practices for the SDGs in Latin America and the Caribbean

To achieve the SDGs by 2030, innovative and influential M&E practices, that capture progress and learning in complex change processes, are critical. Towards this purpose, ACEVAL, the Mexican Evaluation Society, with support from EvalPartners’ Flagship Program and Eval4Action campaign, has launched a competition to identify and disseminate innovative M&E practices for the SDGs in Mexico and other countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. This initiative will contribute to knowledge exchange, capacity building in M&E and increased visibility to the region's contributions to the practice of evaluation at the subnational, national, and regional levels.
