EvalPartners, UN Women and IOCE, in partnership with Parliamentarian Forum for Development Evaluation and the United Nations Evaluation Group (UNEG), are proud to announce the launch of the new book “National evaluation policies for sustainable and equitable development. How to integrate gender equality and social equity in national evaluation policies and systems”, available for free download at http://mymande.org/selected-books
2015 will be a year of global transformation, in which the new Sustainable Development Goals will be launched. Gender equality will be central to ensure the realization of sustainable and equitable development. Evaluation must be equipped to inform the design and implementation of equitable development goals and strategies, both at global and national level. National development policies and programmes should therefore be informed by evidence generated by credible national evaluation systems that are gender-responsive, while ensuring policy coherence at regional and global level.
National Evaluation Policies and Systems can play a strategic role to ensure evaluation is institutionalized in policy-making. This publication is a resource for Parliamentarians, Governments, Voluntary Organizations for Professional Evaluation and Civil Society to ensure that National Evaluation policies and systems are not only developed and implemented but, even more importantly, they are gender-responsive and equity-focused, so that they can meaningfully contribute to achieving sustainable, gender-responsive and equitable development.
