Favourite picture from the Pastoral study

Prateek favourite photo from the pastoral study. This photo is something which I could relate to. We could point out before going to the field how pastoral woman's work does not find itself within the women and work discourse but it was after understanding the relationship of women with animals, we could understand the nature of "work" which a pastoral woman does. 



Announcing winning the honourable mention for the IDEAS Evaluation for Transformation Change Award

Dear friends,

I am very honoured to announce that my evaluation “Real Time Evaluation of Gender Integration in the UNICEF COVID-19 Response in South Asia” was assessed among the top ones in the Award category "Evaluation as transformation" and has received an honourable mention of the Award! It is particularly important as it has embedded feminist principles in the evaluation design.

The Award Steering Committee represented by IDEAS, Independent Evaluation Office of IFAD, and the Independent Evaluation Group of the World Bank Group announced the results of the Evaluation for Transformational Change Award, 2022 edition.

The evaluation approach was “Real Time Evaluation” of gender integration, broadly based on the principles of Developmental Evaluation, leading to continuous learning and adaptive management, enabling the real-time utilisation of evaluation findings to course-correct and influence policy and programmatic responses in the SAR to the Covid-19 pandemic. It employed a rigorous methodology for evidence generation and ‘evaluative empowerment’ processes to deliver accelerated change.

For more details, please check out the IDEAS website


The UNICEF site also hosts the report, along with the presentation and other reports developed for this evaluation.


All of us, gender champions, may find the report of interest as we continue our journey to ensure that gender and equity are at the center of our evaluation processes.

Please feel free to connect with me for queries and comments.
