2nd International Conference on Evaluating Climate Change and Development “Tackling a Key 21st Century Evaluation Challenge”
Start Date: November 4, 2014
End Date: November 6, 2014
Organization: Climate-Eval
Location: United States
About: Scheduled for November 4-6, 2014 in Washington D.C., this 2nd International Conference will tackle the difficulties linked to the evaluation of climate change and development, described by many as a major 21st century evaluation challenge. Participants for the conference are expected to be drawn equally from the global South andNorth to take stock of existing tools and methods but also reflect on and share experiences on emerging approaches in order to improve the practice of climate change evaluation. Efforts will also be made towards identify new and innovative ways to create an enabling environment for the demand and use of climate change and development evaluation in order to improve policy making.
Third International Conference on ENSO: “Bridging the gaps between global ENSO science and regional processes, extremes and impacts”
