  1. Embedding evaluation in national plans and policies to foster transformative development

    Discussion paper

    This IIED Briefing Paper argues that meaningful evaluation of progress towards
    achieving sustainable development extends beyond supporting voluntary national reviews, and that for the full potential of evaluation to be realised, evaluation processes must be embedded in national policies and strategies.

  2. From monitoring goals to systems-informed evaluation: insights from SDG14

    Discussion paper

    This briefing paper from IIED argues that, if the world is going to make significant progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030, development actors will need to think and work in new ways, including in evaluation and that complex systems-informed approaches can make a major contribution.With reference to SDG14 (life below water), this briefing offers two examples: (i) exploring interactions between SDG targets, and (ii) shifting attention from projects and programmes to systems. Such approaches can help all development actors — including monitoring, evaluation and learning specialists — to create boundary-spanning development and evaluation plans, identify leverage points, priorities and trade-offs, and reveal new ways to accelerate progress.
