Launch of standards for governments and academia
At the Youth in Evaluation Week, standards for enhancing youth engagement in evaluation were launched across three events, that were led by intergenerational task forces that co-created the standards. Six tailored standards have been developed for specific groups such as international organizations, VOPEs, governments, youth organizations, academia, and the private sector. The standards provide a roadmap to step up the practice and accountability towards engaging youth in evaluation.
On 25 April, the standards for governments and academia were launched. The discussions at the event highlighted how the standards can be used as a powerful tool for self-accountability, and to initiate and improve practices that enhance meaningful engagement of youth in evaluation.
