Today marks the first day of the International Year of Evaluation, which kicks off with an official celebration at the UN Headquarters in New York City. More than ever, evaluation is becoming increasingly important in international development. The global EvalPartners and the United Nations Evaluation Group officially declared 2015 as the International Year of Evaluation earlier this year. As the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) will be replaced by Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015, measuring results and impact of development activities is increasingly critical. How can the international development community align their monitoring and evaluation skills with new technology to make progress toward the SDGs?

TechChange couldn’t be more excited to kick-off 2015 with the launch of the next round of our online course on Technology for Monitoring & Evaluation. Starting January 26th, this four week course will explore the vital role of technology in enhancing monitoring and evaluations efforts which could have a critical impact on SDG fullfillment.
