To increase engagement of YEEs including young women and marginalized communities in Sri Lanka in the evaluation field; 2. To enhance knowledge and skills of YEEs on monitoring and evaluation; 3. To enhance peer-to-peer support and networking among YEEs in Sri Lanka; and 4. Ensure that YEEs are involved in evaluation of policy decision making.
