“Evaluating the Sustainable Development Goals - New Challenges for Research, Policy and Business”

Date: 28th October 2015
Venue: Vienna University of Economics and Business
Welthandelsplatz 1, 1020 Vienna, Austria
Learning Center (LC), Festsaal 2

With the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by the United Nations in September 2015, a new set of objectives for global sustainable development will guide the global development agenda. Due to the universal acceptance and the integration into national goals, the SDGs provide a comprehensive approach, ensuring a high level of ambition for achieving results, involving development agencies and governments, international organisations, civil society and business.

Coinciding with 2015 as the International Year of Evaluation and the European Year of Development, the symposium aimed to be a forum for discussion on the implications of the SDGs for the impact evaluation of policies, programmes and projects across sectors.

The symposium addressed the central question of how the SDGs may inform research and practice in evaluation. How can we make sure progress on the SDGs are effectively tracked and evaluated? How do evaluation systems need to adapt to the changed development agenda? How can evaluation contribute to achieving the set goals?
