‘Ownership’ of evaluation & evaluative mindset in communities – key to achieving the goal of No one left behind

‘Ownership’ of evaluation & evaluative mindset in communities – key to achieving the goal of No one left behind 

We often use the term community participation in evaluation but do we reflect enough on the degree and depth of this engagement?“Use of participatory tools alone do not guarantee ‘ownership’. Evaluation can be a largely extractive process of getting data from the communitiesdid the communities have a say in what data has to be…

Tackling Gender Inequality Through Health Equity

Still today, in almost all societies around the world, women are less well-off than men. Women are still paid less than men; they are less represented in business, politics and decision-making. Their life chances remain overwhelmingly less promising than those of men.

Making the transition from evaluations to knowledge on gender-transformation

In-spite of several decades of development, the progress has been limited in reducing gender based violence, gender gap in economy, and gender gap in political participation globally. Yet a lot of development programmes and projects focus on these issues, and several evaluations have been carried on 'gender integrated' and 'gender specific projects". 

A key question is "Are evaluations creating to knowledge building on what works and what does not work with regard to reducing gender…
