Applying evaluative thinking towards an effective ILO contribution to the implementation of the SDGs

i-eval THINK Piece, No. 11 - December 2016 -- This THINK Piece was commissioned by EVAL and written by Robert Lahey. The introduction of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) has meant that the ILO is having to look both inward and outward as it works to optimize its contribution to the SDGs into the Decent Work (DW) Agenda. As the Think Piece illustrates, it will not be ‘business as usual’ going forward. Evaluative thinking, involving all ILO officials and not just evaluators, offers a useful way to help identify where and how the Office can optimize its contribution to the SDGs.
