On March 8, 2016 EDSG experts participated in the meeting of Gender and Evaluation Network. Participants, representing international think tank and international organizations discussed a new dimension of development evaluation in relation to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It was decided to establish a topical interest group (TIG) at the American Evaluation Association (AEA), which would be focused on SDGs. The participants agreed to arrange a session on the SDGs at the relevant VOPE conferences.
Gender and evaluation network is an informal platform for discussion of the issues related to evaluation in development. The platform was established in 2013 and is considered to be a knowledge sharing hub for EvalGender+, the global partnership led by EvalPartners.
