In 2020, UIA, together with Ecorys, explored the different approaches of on-going UIA projects to capture the change that their innovative interventions are bringing at local level.
To monitor, measure and assess this change, cities need to follow structured evaluation approaches. The 55 UIA projects that have been reviewed to this end revealed that successful projects share a number of solutions, principles and approaches.

Looking for innovative techniques to monitor and evaluate your project? Seeking to get inspired with flexible monitoring and evaluation approaches? Need to rethink your own approach to monitoring and evaluation?

The final event that will be held on 11 March 10.00-12.00 CET to hear about the best practices of UIA projects implementing Monitoring and Evaluation and to find out about the lessons learnt. And don’t miss the sneak preview of the UIA online report about Monitoring and Evaluation!
