In episode 5, we conclude the second part of our interview with Dr Jyotsna Puri (Jo), the Head of the IEU.

Appointed by the GCF Board in 2017, Jo built the IEU from the ground up to a team of 28 members today. She has worked tirelessly to ensure that the IEU conduct high-quality evidence-based evaluations that will help make the GCF faster, smarter, and better. Unfortunately for the IEU, the 26th meeting of the GCF Board held in August was the last GCF Board meeting that Jo attended as the head of the IEU, as she will be leaving the GCF to join the International Fund for Agricultural Development.

In this episode, Jo delves into the importance of trusted evidence and what she has learned over the course of leading 7 evaluations.
