Seoul – August 16, 2017 – The Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) was granted observer-status membership to the United Nations Evaluation Group (UNEG) on July 16, 2017.
The UNEG is an inter-agency network of over 45 members that brings together evaluation professionals from across UN and affiliated organizations. Its mission is to promote the independence, credibility and use of evaluations for learning, decision making and accountability within and beyond the UN system.
Joining the UNEG forms a part of GGGI’s efforts to strengthen its results-based approach to realizing green growth. This was highlighted by the establishment of a new Impact & Evaluation Unit in late 2016, to help harness evidence inside and outside the Institute to further enhance the green growth impact of GGGI’s services to member countries.
“We are pleased and grateful to UNEG for accepting GGGI into this important community of practice” said GGGI Deputy Director-General, Mr. Robert Dawson. He added, “Many UNEG members share a mutual interest in the green growth agenda. Joining this network provides rich opportunities for GGGI to learn from evaluation work of others, as well as for GGGI to contribute and share its own lessons.”
