Sustainable Development Goals: evaluating progress for a brighter future – podcast

Every country has 2030 as the date for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Some are well on the way to meeting targets, others have further to go. In this new three-part mini-series, we explore how to evaluate progress against the goals. 

Evaluating how well countries are meeting targets requires work across different sectors and themes. It’s not only a question of how to do the evaluation, but also, once the results are in, how to support government departments and civil society to act on the findings. 

And as countries deal with the impacts of climate change, including assessment of how climate risks have affected SDG strategies and may do so in the future has become an essential part of any evaluation exercise – but the knowledge of how to do that effectively is not widespread.

This podcast series draws on the knowledge and learning from a longstanding partnership between EvalSDGs (a network of development institutions, policymakers and practitioners), the German Institute for Development Evaluation (Deval) and IIED , with funding contributed by EvalSDGS  through its membership of EvalPartners.

Over the course of three episodes, hosts from each organisation discuss the details and challenges of assessing progress against the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with other specialists in evaluation theory and practice.
