Are you aware of an evaluation of a development intervention that resulted in transformational change, explicitly linked to the SDGs? Nominate it for the second Evaluation for Transformational Change Award!
This award competition, organized by the Independent Office of Evaluation of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), the Independent Evaluation Group of the World Bank, and the International Development Evaluation Association, recognizes the growing understanding of the need to transform our societies, our economies, and our relationship with nature to be able to achieve the aspirations expressed in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement.
The Evaluation for Transformational Change Award seeks to recognize evaluations that have contributed to transformational change. Nominations are now open. The winner in each award category will receive a monetary award of US$ 5,000 and a certificate and will be invited to write a chapter in an IDEAS publication after the Global Assembly. Winners will also be invited to take part in the 2022 IDEAS Global Assembly and Award Ceremony. More information can be found at the link below.
