EVALSDGs Insight #10- gender and equity in SDGs

EVALSDGs Insight #10 concerns a longstanding issue: gender inequality and the degree to which the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) can assure equality and equity among peoples. Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs) of SDGs implementation in 66 countries indicate that countries must act vigorously to achieve gender equity across all SDGs. This Insight proposes some solutions for strengthening gender responsiveness in evaluations of the SDGs.


Looking for evaluators with experience in participatory evaluation for my PhD dissertation


My name is Akashi Kaul and I'm a fifth year PhD candidate at George Mason University in Fairfax, VA, USA. I am currently working on my dissertation and am hoping to graduate this summer. Starting almost immediately, I'm looking to do the following two things for my dissertation research:

1. I'm looking to conduct interviews with 10-15 evaluators who have conducted international development evaluations, employing participatory or collaborative methods. The interview would focus on the process and challenges of conducting such evaluations. Please refer to the AEA 365 post I co-authored a while ago to get a brief idea of how I'm conceptualizing this.

If you would be interested in participating or know of someone who would, I would appreciate if you reached out! 

2. I am conducting a document analysis of the evaluation policy and procedure documents of major international aid and donor agencies, along with some popular instruments/frameworks used. Ideally, I would love to get my hands on some evaluation reports that used participatory or collaborative methods. Any references here would be greatly appreciated!

Any and all help, suggestions, references or resources would be highly appreciated!

Please feel free to write back with any questions!

Thank you,
