The FIP Development Goals Digital Programme “Setting goals for the decade ahead” is a comprehensive online event series providing coverage of the 21 goals over 21 events in 2021. Starting in March, the 21 digital events aim to provide description, direction and context for each specific goal, with a global plan for the decade ahead and how each nation, within each region can identify and prioritise which goals are the priorities and how the goals can support developments and transformation for them.

The expected outcomes of the event are:

  1. Describe the FIP Development Goals and explain the components of DG 13 (and its three elements: workforce & education, science and practice).
  2. Showcase the FIP tools, evidence, and resources to support DG 13 implementation across the three elements.
  3. Identify priorities across practice, science, and workforce & education within DG 13
  4. Discuss the importance monitoring and evaluation through data evidence and engage participants with FIP indicators development project
