EvalPartners, formed by the International Organization for Cooperation in Evaluation (IOCE) and the United Nations in 2012, is an innovative partnership between the UN, Voluntary Organizations for Professional Evaluation (VOPEs), Governments, Parliamentarians, Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), Development Banks and other partners. Together, these partners strive to influence policymakers, public opinion, and key stakeholders to recognise the need for effective evaluation as crucial to any decision.
EvalPartners has credibly demonstrated its capacity to bring together organizations from across the globe to enhance evaluation capabilities of VOPEs and individual members. The UN declared 2015 as the International Year of Evaluation and EvalPartners launched the Global Evaluation Agenda for 2016-2020 at the Parliament of Nepal in 2016.
In 2022, EvalPartners celebrates a Decade of bringing together global evaluators and other partners to steer forward the Global Evaluation Agenda.
