Evaluation for better regulation in environment and climate policies – Lessons from research and practice

Practitioners and users of environmental evaluation, such as evaluators in consultancies, academics, European and national policy-makers, are invited to participate in the 5th European Environmental Evaluators Network Forum (2016 EEEN Forum).

Background

The purpose of the international Environmental Evaluators Network (EEN) is to advance the practice, policy and theory of evaluating environmental programmes, policies and other interventions. Since 2012, the European Environmental Evaluators’ Network (EEEN) has been organising Forums to promote more systematic and collective learning in these areas.

 Programme

The 2016 EEEN Forum will identify contributions, opportunities and lessons from evaluation research and practice to support better regulation in environment and climate policies. The forum will bring together a wide range of actors and provide a platform for exchange of knowledge, ideas and experiences.

 How to participate

If you would like to contribute to or participate in the 2016 EEEN Forum, stay tuned. The call for contributions will open in early 2016. You are welcome to forward this message to your colleagues and collaborators and invite them to subscribe to the EEEN Forum mailing list to stay informed about the event

The Paris Declaration Evaluation Phase 2 Team named Recipient of the American Evaluation Association 2012 Outstanding Evaluation Award

This evaluation focused on implementation of Paris Declaration Principles rather than a specific project or program. The evaluation of The Paris Declaration initially documented how its many principles were being implemented and operationalised; then later assessed results on the ground, in policy development and more broadly. A final report summarised, analysed, and synthesized more than 50 studies in 21 partner countries and across 18 donor agencies, as well as several studies on special themes. “The evaluation process was participatory and consultative among partner countries, donors, and international organization participants,” notes Michael Quinn Patton, a pioneer in the field of evaluation who nominated the work for the Outstanding Evaluation Award.
