Welcoming addresses by the conference hosts
This session will frame the key themes of the conference, beginning with a presentation of emerging findings of the forthcoming Human Development Report on inequalities, followed by a discussion of the implications for evaluation and ensuring that evaluations leave no one behind.
Relevance, Effectiveness, Efficiency, Impact and Sustainability: these five evaluation criteria – first articulated by the OECD/DAC in 1991 – have become a core part of evaluation policy and practice. Over the past two years, the DAC Evaluation Network and the wider evaluation community have taken stock of experiences with applying the criteria and worked to adapt the criteria to support better evaluations for learning and accountability. This session will present the current thinking on the criteria, including emerging definitions and principles for use, with reflections and critiques from different perspectives.
This session will bring together the findings of the conference sessions to formulate answers to the question of what does “evaluation for 2030” look like and how does it ensure no one is left behind? The conference will then come to its close.
