Funding of participants and donor appeal
The 2019 IDEAS Global Assembly and the Third International Conference on Evaluating Environment and Development have raised a lot of interest from members and partners, especially due to various factors: the opportune time to discuss evaluation of transformative change; the idea of bringing the South to the North, acknowledging that the work carried out by the South can be inspiring to the North, cross-fertilizing the field of evaluation with best practices and novel ideas for transformational change; the collaboration with GEF/IEO and Earth-Eval, which brings to the table one of most relevant cross-cutting subjects within the SDGs: our relationship to the environment. A donor drive is undertaken to ensure participants from the Global South, with emphasis on the least developed countries, can receive bursaries. IDEAS and GEF/IEO strongly appeal to donors to fund participants from the Global South and thus enable their voice in the Global Assembly. Donors that contribute this way will be recognized on this website and during the Assembly.
The organizers of the 2019 Global Assembly and the Third International Conference on Evaluating Environment and Development appeal to all those interested in participating, to find possibilities for collaboration and support from your regional and national institutions. Perhaps funding can be linked to concrete products we would identify together in advance, of interest of institutions and organizations. Please contact the IDEAS Coordinator for any further questions or support.
