The UNDP Regional Bureau for Europe and CIS is on the ground in 19 countries and territories in the region, working with national partners, connecting people to knowledge and addressing their development challenges. In Europe and Central Asia, UNDP is moving from helping countries steer their ‘transition’ to supporting states in pursuing sustainable development – policy advice that has generated lessons for other regions.
The Government of the Republic of Turkey will co-host the conference. UNDP and Turkey signed a Partnership Framework Agreement in 2011. Turkey and UNDP share a mutual interest to facilitate the exchange of development knowledge and expertise across regions. Turkey’s strategic location at the crossroads of different continents enables the country to take a more prominent role in the international arena. Its active presence and engagement in international and regional organizations allows it to advocate for an advance global development agendas, including Agenda 2030.
The mandate of the EES is to stimulate, guide and promote the theory, practice, and utilization of evaluation in Europe and beyond. The EES vision is a world where evaluation contributes to human welfare through social learning. Specifically, EES seeks to advance evaluation knowledge and to encourage adoption of good practices by fostering evaluation excellence, independence, and partnerships. The EES will contribute to the overall conceptualization of the conference, bring high-level technical expertise to the workshops and Conference sessions, and assist in moderating different components of the conference.
