Webinar: The role of evaluation for climate action
Building on the outcomes of the recent UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26), this webinar aims to facilitate a dialogue on the role that evaluation can play for learning and bringing solutions towards the goals of the Paris Agreement.
Bringing together evaluators and development practitioners, the webinar will offer a platform to exchange on the shifts that evaluation practices must undertake to help tackle the climate crisis, while also shedding light on initiatives that trigger transformation at all levels of society, with a focus on development cooperation and humanitarian assistance in agriculture and food security.
Following a key note presentation, participants will be invited to join and discuss in parallel sessions where a short presentation will be followed by facilitated discussions. The expected outcome is a collective reflection on the actions and ways forward for advancing the role of evaluation in support to learning and transformation for climate change action.
The webinar will take place on Thursday, December 9, 2021 and starts at 2:00 PM (Rome time).

Virtual Plenary of the Global Forest Observations Initiative (GFOI)
The Global Forest Observations Initiative (GFOI) invites you to attend the GFOI Plenary 2021, which will take place online from 7 to 9 September 2021, from 14:00 to 16:30 CEST each day.
This is a collaborative event organised by the GFOI Office, hosted by FAO, on behalf of GFOI's Lead partners in the Governments of Australia, Germany, Norway, the United Kingdom and the United States of America, as well as the international organizations participating in the Committee on Earth Observation Satellites (CEOS), the European Space Agency (ESA), the FAO and the World Bank.
GFOI is a voluntary partnership, which aims to coordinate international support in forest monitoring. Through collaborative action, GFOI supports tropical countries to develop National Forest Monitoring Systems (NFMS) and associated emissions Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) procedures.
The annual GFOI Plenary is the biggest event on the GFOI's calendar. It brings together the global community of practitioners who support tropical countries in forest monitoring MRV. The Plenary aims to share information and ideas, review progress and identify new opportunities for helping countries to improve their forest monitoring capabilities to enable better forest management and ultimately the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
Starting on day one the GFOI community will share their reflections from the past and what has learned from forest monitoring and MRV implementation over the past decade or more. On day two, we will then turn our minds to the present and the work of GFOI’s four components before concluding on day three with a look to the future and how the GFOI community can best support countries to meet their ongoing and emerging forest monitoring and MRV needs.
The event will include live interpretation for English, French and Spanish speakers.
