Knowing the place: Key methods and processes for evaluator engagement in environmental sustainability evaluationsUnderstanding the 'place' - be it the site of a project, program, strategy or policy - is critical when addressing environmental sustainability as part of an evaluation.
- Most interventions occur at a place; projects are often at one or more places such as communities or districts; strategies find their application at places, as do policies, often through programs.
- Knowing place is essential, as understanding all aspects of context is vital to undertaking evaluation that supports community, environmental renewal, and sustainability.

It outlines five considerations: the budget, respondents and accessibility, the kind of data being collected, challenges to data collection and how the data will be used.
The week before last, we were treated to over 300 diverse, live events on evaluation in the annual event that is glocal – a week of locally hosted, globally accessible webinars, presentations and hybrid sessions that is convened by the Global Evaluation

A new pathway: how can funders support meaningful monitoring, evaluation, and learning practice in the field?
How can donors and grantees work together to create effective monitoring, evaluation, and learning (MEL) practices that drive field-wide transformation?
Evaluators need to communicate better and foster the utilisation of evaluation findings through clear and engaging writing.
