This is a free event organised by the NSW Regional Network Committee of the AES. Our seminar series provides an opportunity for you to meet with AES members and others in New South Wales and to share and learn from the experiences of fellow evaluators. Members are encouraged to bring along colleagues with an interest in the topic even if they are not yet members of the AES. Please pass this onto your colleagues and networks.
About the seminar:
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), agreed in 2015 by all 193-member states of the United Nations and complemented by commitments made in the Paris Agreement, map out a broad spectrum of economic, social and environmental objectives to be achieved by 2030. Reaching these goals will require deep transformations in every country, as well as significant efforts in monitoring and measuring progress.
This event will examine how a systems approach can be taken to the SDGs. The workshop will involve a presentation by Michael Reid, Managing Director of The Keyline Group, followed by an interactive discussion about the challenges of evaluation in complex policy contexts.
