Fostering a Professional Evaluation Culture in Bhutan

CoE SA Evaluation Conclave 2017
Well-being and Sustainable Development – New Frontiers in Evaluation

Happiness – or people’s satisfaction of their lives – has become the key indicator of well-being. Many factors contribute to happiness; these include personal factors such as income, health, the freedom to choose life styles etc. Additionally, there are social conditions such as community interactions and governance. The conditions of the environment in which we live also contribute significantly to well-being and happiness.

In the recent times, work has progressed on quantifying happiness; for example, the evaluative happiness, as detailed in the World Happiness Report, looks at overall quality of life and has developed benchmarks. The ultimate aim of 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is human well-being examined from economic, social, and environmental objectives, rather than from a narrow agenda of economic growth alone.

Well-being can be easily linked to some of the key SDGs; for example, mitigating poverty (SDG 1), gender equality (SDG 5), working towards equality of income and wealth in society (SDG 10), promoting environmental stability and sustainability, and fostering peace and inclusive society.
