Evaluating SDGs with an equity focused and gender responsive lens

Looking particularly into the Indian context, here are some of the thoughts, while we undertake the journey towards SDGs:

  • Considering the diversities and complexities of the social & economic vulnerabilities & exclusion in India, achieving SDGs by 2030 will be as challenging as it was for MDGs, both for the Indian Government and the National & International Development partners / actors
  • "Exclusion" is a key factor for the vulnerability and…

Rigid Gender Gaps and Missing SDG Targets and Indicators

The Global Gender Gap Report 2016 draws attention to the widening of gender gap in health and economic sphere. Two indicators are used in this report with respect to gender gap gap in health: gap in healthy life expectancy and sex ratio at birth (after adjusting for the fact that more males are born). Sex ratio at birth (female-over-male) amongst the countries studied has declined from 0.94 to 0.92 (1 being equality) between 2006 and 2015, while gender gap in healthy life expectancy has…

Equity, SDG indicators and systems thinking

In this blog I would like to use parts of the  Rajagopalan’s (2015) Immersive Systemic  Knowing framework. He distinguishes between four ways of knowing:  being, cognition, doing and learning. Being refers to ways of living, existing and relating with others and environment which is shaped by culture and history.  Cognition is the mental action or process of acquiring knowledge and understanding through thought, experience, and the senses. Doing refers to activities in which one engages.…

The importance of participatory monitoring of outcomes.

In my previous blog, "What's in a baseline" in the last sentence I say, "...we need to put more emphasis on E and less on M in M & E". What I meant to say was exactly the opposite, that is, 'more emphasis on M and less on E in M & E'.

What I failed to do was monitor what I was doing. It was only later, when Rituu Nanda made a comment that I realized my error. But it was too late! This is exactly what happens so often in community development - outputs get monitored instead of…

A survey on feminist and gender-responsive evaluation in India

I am a French sociologist and political scientist, working on the women’s movement in South Asia. I first heard about feminist/gender-responsive evaluation as I was starting to investigate the recent transformations of feminism in the region. I was immediately interested by the idea of “feminist evaluation”, as so far, as I had often heard of Monitoring and Evaluation as a burden for feminist/women’s oriented NGOs and project. I am both interested in the conceptual…
