2019 IDEAS Global Assembly & Third International Conference on Evaluating Environment and Development

The conference: an overview

The International Development Evaluation Association – IDEAS – and the Independent Evaluation Office of the Global Environment Facility (GEF/IEO) and the Earth-Eval Community of Practice proudly invite you to participate in the exciting and challenging event organized in partnership with the Czech Evaluation Society, under the auspices of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic. The conference will be held in Prague at the Hotel Duo Prague, from 30 September to 4 October 2019.

The overall theme of the Conference is Evaluation for Transformative Change: Bringing experiences of the Global South to the Global North.

Agenda 2030, adopted by the member states of the United Nations in September 2015, calls for new partnerships to work towards a sustainable and equitable future for humanity on our planet. It radically redefines development and asks for transformative changes of our societies, our economies and of the way we interact with nature and our habitat. While this is most strongly emphasised in the Paris Climate Agreement and its follow-up meetings, transformative changeis a cross-cutting issue throughout the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Each country needs to identify its own transformation priorities.
