I visited Khandwa district, Madhya Pradesh, India this month with the impressive NGO Eficor
There were remote villages untouched by 'mainstream development'. There were also villages near the town of Khalwa where industries had come up and health services were accessible. Interestingly children were better nourished (records of ICDS- weight by age) in the remote area, than the accessible one. Institutional delivery was however higher in the developed area. The remote…Continue

Back from EES 2014, very much lived up to expectations. A group of us had first gone in 2010 to the EES Conference at Prague and that was part of the process leading to the Engendering Policy through Evaluation project managed by Institute of Social Studies Trust (ISST), and to participation in EES 2012 and now EES 2014. We are pleased to have been part of the Gender Strand started if I’m not wrong, in 2010. Over these years, we’ve learnt a lot about evaluation approaches and methods and…Continue
Participation in EES, 2014 was an excellent opportunity to rethink assumptions, meet friends again and see bits of Dublin.
What did I learn from the four days I spent at EES? I learnt from 'systems-thinkers' the distinction between doing things right and doing the right things.

This is because we have invested lots of time and effort to figure out how to present the rather complicated results of our Qualitative Comparative Analysis of 39 evaluations in the field of violence against women and girls. We're glad our efforts have been rewarded.…Continue
