We are excited to share with you information about an annual monitoring and evaluation (M&E) knowledge sharing initiative, gLOCAL Evaluation Week, convened by the Global Evaluation Initiative (GEI) together with local and global partners. As a part of DEval, the project Focelac+ is happy to be involved in this initiative and encourage you to read more about it.
The gLOCAL Evaluation Week, a dedicated week for knowledge and experience sharing events related to monitoring and evaluation (M&E) topics around the globe, was launched by the CLEAR Initiative, in 2019.
In the short time since gLOCAL was launched, partners from around the world have hosted over 1000 M&E focused events across five continents in multiple languages. In 2021, nearly 350 events took place, hosted by more than 200 institutions in 174 countries. We are excited to see how gLOCAL will continue to grow in 2022, reaching more people, and delivering an engaging and successful knowledge sharing opportunity.
This year gLOCAL Evaluation Week will take place virtually between May 30th and June 3rd 2022. During this week, events organized by public, private, and academic institutions and organizations that produce, use, or promote evaluations to strengthen development programs will take place around the world. In addition to traditional topics such as ‘Evaluation Methods,’ ‘Evaluation Capacity Development,’ and ‘Evaluation Communication and Use,’ this year’s special theme “EvalEvolve: The evolution of M&E in the 21st century” will allow event organizers to consider how M&E is changing to adapt to our new realities.
