The GEF IEO will participate in the 13th Biennial Conference of the European Evaluation Society (EES) held in Thessaloniki, Greece, on October 1-5, 2018. The theme of the conference is Evaluation for More Resilient Societies (www.ees2018.eu). This will be one of the largest EES conferences with some 750 registered participants, including evaluators and evaluation commissioners from governments, international organizations, academia and the private sector. Juha Uitto, IEO Director, will make two distinct contributions through presentations and participation in panels. The first one, entitled Evaluation for the Anthropocene, makes a call for action for sustainability-ready evaluation and provides concrete advice on how to evaluate in coupled natural and human systems. The second one, organized by the World Bank, focuses on building strong M&E systems for global partnership programs.
