International Year of Evaluation

In the summer of 2013 at the Third International Conference on National Evaluation Capacities, which took place in Sao Paulo (Brazil), the year 2015 was declared the International Year of Evaluation. This initiative came from the international movement EvalPartners, which is oriented at the development of evaluation at the national level. On 19 December 2014, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution 69/237 "Capacity Building for the Evaluation of Development Activities at the Country-Level". This is the first resolution on evaluation in the UN history. The resolution underlines the importance of national capacity for the evaluation and urges the UN structures to assist countries in developing their evaluation capacity. The resolution also officially recognizes 2015 as the International Year of Evaluation.
