Transforming evaluation for transformational change in humanitarian and fragile contexts
Our planet is experiencing a period of deep crisis. The COVID-19 pandemic, the climate emergency and seemingly endless conflict are devastating lives and livelihoods, deepening inequalities and threatening hopes of achieving Zero Hunger and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.
Increased contexts of fragility and conflict have raised searching questions that go beyond the value of development activities to the direction of humanitarian action and the role of humanitarians, resilience builders and peacemakers working in and on situations of crisis.
Those questions extend to the role evaluation must play in building a better future in these contexts. In a world of global destabilization how must evaluation adjust and evolve to answer the call for transformational change? How can evaluators contribute to the goals of sustainable development and leaving no one behind? How has evaluation adapted to the Covid-19 pandemic to emerge more agile and representative? How can evaluation deliver relevant and timely findings to inform ongoing, protracted and often complex situations and global decision making?
These many challenges that face the evaluation community will be explored in a series of sessions that make up a special humanitarian and fragile context strand at this year’s conference. The humanitarian and fragile context strand will bring together representatives from governments, civil society, the private sector, research and academia, United Nations agencies and others to explore how evaluation approaches have shifted, what has been learned, and how they must continue to evolve.
