Thank you Marco for this well thought out, well written and easy to follow presentation.  I concur with colleagues who have commented on this powerful and professional presentation.  I believe it is a useful resource for the evaluation community, it certainly is for me.  I sense the appeal for action and commitment in your presentation which rhymes with your other publications including From Policy To Results.

Thank you once again

 I have gone through your presentation. It is very impressive and touching. It inspires us to  give special focus for evaluation to bring gender equality. we have many  challenges, specially people living in developing and emerged region . So, more effort should be exerted to enhance gender mainstreaming inn all  attempts and  design  good evaluation mechanism.

Excellent Presentation! Very specific and clear statements. The slides are well organized, and there are many learning issues, especially on 'Gender Equity' and SDGs which could certainly be helpful for us, the development practitioners to think and do work.

Many thanks for your brilliant ideas Marco!

Dear Segone

Very Interesting presentations and very powerful images. Just a note you have missed SLEvA logo in your Global Partners Slide. Hopefully  by next Year you will have APEA logo in your presentations too. Thanks & Regards

A powerful presentation Marco! The first five slides of your presentation are very thought provoking. They give excellent insights with regards to the global context of the SDGs (e.g the wealth of the three richest individuals in the world is higher than the GDP of the 48 poorest countries).  In this world where we are already talking of property rights, is it not time that we also begin talking about property ethics? Is it ethical for a person to own and/ or control wealth that is more than the GDP of 10 countries? Is this not the source of starvation for the extremely poor? It seems as if all our zeal towards equitable development reduces to mere rhetoric unless we can recommend and actively advocate for massive wealth re-distribution policies at national, regional and global levels, which unfortunately sounds unrealistic, too far fetched, rather unwelcome for those wielding wealth!  

If advocating for policies that force or persuade the rich to share significant proportions of their wealth (not mere philanthropy under the banner of CSR) with the extremely poor is unrealistic (which I believe it is), then we may reasonably hypothesise that we will have more inequalities in 2030 than we have today since the very factors that gave fair and/or unfair advantage in accumulation of wealth to particular individuals and nations are likely to remain in operation or - worse - be aggravated with increasing social sophistication!

This is not pessimism. It is realistic thinking. If we are serious about equity, we have serious challenges before us!
