United Nations Evaluations Group (UNEG) Week

15/05/2017 - 19/05/2017

The 2017 Evaluation Week will take place in Vienna between 15th and 19th May, 2017. The event is organized with the support of the Vienna-based UNEG member organizations: Preparatory Commission for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO), International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC).

The Evaluation Week provides a unique forum for UNEG members to get together once a year, face-to-face, to share and exchange latest activities, best practices and lessons and knowledge in evaluation. It is also an important business platform, where the Group’s strategy and work plans are discussed with a view to setting the course for the upcoming year. FAO, as a member agency will be present in Vienna contributing the discussions.

Main theme of 2017 Evaluation Week: “Eradicating poverty and promoting prosperity in a changing world.”
