We are excited to have you join us for this global knowledge sharing event. gLOCAL is an annual event, in which the global evaluation community comes together to share their knowledge and experiences with a global audience. Over the years, gLOCAL has grown to be one of the biggest and most vibrant M&E knowledge-sharing events worldwide.

We appreciate and welcome all event proposals. Each year, we strive to ensure that gLOCAL offers interesting events that represent a diversity of experience and knowledge and are aligned with the annual gLOCAL theme. Each proposal will be reviewed based on the selection criteria below. We will then let you know if your event has been accepted to be part of gLOCAL.

What kind of event proposals are we looking for? 

A successful gLOCAL event should meet the following criteria:
