The CLEAR Initiative is convening gLOCAL Evaluation Week to help promote Local and Global Monitoring and Evaluation knowledge exchange and capacity development.
gLOCAL Evaluation Week is a new M&E knowledge sharing initiative being convened by the CLEAR Centers with support from local and global partners. It aims to support the exchange of M&E knowledge and experiences as a means to promote evaluation capacity development, support evidence-based decision making, and strengthen development outcomes at local and global levels. These goals are central to the CLEAR Initiative’s mission, and are the inspiration for gLOCAL Evaluation Week.
The first gLOCAL Evaluation Week will take place between June 3 and 7, 2019. During this week events organized by public, private, and academic institutions and organizations that produce, use, or promote evaluations to strengthen development programs will take place around the world.
“We are convening this global initiative to further stimulate M&E knowledge sharing and capacity development at local and global levels, and to promote the use of evidence in decision making, and improve development outcomes,” said Sophie Sirtaine, Director of Strategy and Operations, Independent Evaluation Group of the World Bank Group, and CEO of the CLEAR Initiative.
