"On December 19, 2014, the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted the resolution entitled "Capacity Building for the Evaluation of Development Activities at the Country Level" (from 1:10:28 to 1:13:04). The resolution recognizes 2015 as the International Year of Evaluation, invites the UN development system to support, as requested by national and international stakeholders, the strengthening of Member State capacity for evaluation "in accordance with their national policies and priorities", and requests that the Secretary General of the UN provides an update in 2016 on progress in evaluation capacity building. This landmark resolution was supported by 130 members of the UN, but unfortunately not by Canada. This UN resolution may well be seen in the future as starting point for a new evaluation impetus."
