Call for contributions - Good practice and Lessons-Learned in Gender Responsive Evaluation in the framework of the SDG and Beijing+25

Dear Colleagues, 

UN Women Independent Evaluation and Audit Services (IEAS) is planning to publish a Good practices and Lessons-Learned in Gender Responsive Evaluation in the framework of the SDG+5 and Beijing+25.  The knowledge product will highlight good practices on how evaluations with gender-lens are impactful in tacking the structural barriers and social norms for gender equality against the twelve critical areas of concern identified in the Beijing Platform for Action (BPfA):    


  1. Women and poverty
  2. Education and training of women
  3. Women and health
  4. Violence against women
  5. Women and armed conflict
  6. Women and the economy
  7. Women in power and decision-making
  8. Institutional mechanisms for the advancement of women
  9. Human rights of women
  10. Women and the media
  11. Women and the environment
  12. The girl-Child 


In addition to UN Women evaluations, we would like to feature good practices and innovative initiatives from other UN system entities, national partners and broader evaluation communities. Having a mix of lessons and examples from different partners will give a richer perspective of how gender-responsive evaluation can drive the implementation of the SDGs, and BpfA. We also plan to widely disseminate the good practices through various channels to potentially inform ongoing discussions around the SDGs and Beijing +25 review.

 Given this, we would really appreciate if your organization could share with us 2-3 recent evaluation reports preferably completed in 2017 and 2018/2019 with special focus on 1) evaluations with strong gender-responsive methods and approaches; and 2) innovative initiatives to systematically capture gender-results in evaluation practice.  

 Please share with us your inputs in the following format :
