Background to the Regional Review
The regional Review of National Evaluation Systems and Capacities for Evaluating Progress Towards the SDGs aims to foster peer-to-peer learning among key stakeholders in the region in relation to evaluation and the SDGs, trigger interest in a regional State of Evaluation report, and inform global and national evaluation capacity guidance.
The proposed case study is one of five (in addition to Philippines, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Thailand) that will serve as inputs to a regional synthesis report on emerging good practices. This will be accomplished by using the case studies and regional synthesis to showcase existing national evaluation champions and emerging country practices in the region, distil key success factors, trends, and lessons, and identify areas that other countries in the region should prioritize.
In addition, by taking a consultative approach that engages key stakeholders, the production of the case studies will be oriented to building interest and capacity in relation to evaluation and the 2030 Agenda amongst national evaluation stakeholders. The case studies and regional synthesis will also complement national reports for the High Level Political Forum (HLPF) on evaluation and the SDGs Follow-up and Review (FUR) Process.
