Conference 03 - 07 June 2024 Online

The 2024 gLocal Evaluation Week, convened by the Global Evaluation Initiative (GEI), is a unique knowledge-sharing event, connecting a global community of people across sectors and regions. This year, gLOCAL's theme will focus on how evaluation can contribute to transformational change in two key ways, by enhancing (policy) stakeholders’ understanding of this process and by providing a platform to advocate for policy solutions that are more likely to contribute to it. 3ie will be participating in many sessions.
