VNRs and SDG Evaluations in Anglophone Africa and Latin America – Discussion Paper
A Mapping of Common Challenges and Emerging Good Practices
The German Institute for Development Evaluation (Deval), the Centre for Learning on Evaluation and Results-Anglophone Africa (CLEAR-AA) and the Centre for Learning on Evaluation and Results-Latin America and the Caribbean (CLEAR-LAC) formed a technical working group that undertook this research on the current role of evaluations in informing the drafting of country Voluntary National Review (VNR) reports. This attached discussion paper report elaborates on what the discussion paper found regarding the evidence sources of a typical VNR. This study is an important contribution to knowledge and best practice regarding the position of evaluation in the tracking of SDG progress among UN member nations. There were 8 country case studies: Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Uganda (Anglophone Africa); Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador and Mexico.
