LET’S WALK THE GENDER TALK: MY PERSONAL WISH FOR 2018. This morning, I was looking at the new #WorldBank #IEG cartoon calendar devoted to #Water & #Sanitation. I especially liked the picture on the May page: it reminds all of us, in #evaluation too, of how misinterpreted the concepts of #gender #equality and #equity could be. I’ve seen evaluation ToR and inception reports where the gender equality dimension translated into a single and not-so-well-worded evaluation question (generally placed under the #effectiveness #OECD #DAC criterion). Similarly, I have seen evaluation reports where gender equality was mentioned in the methodology section but no specific framework was adopted or any specific measure was taken to « walk the GENDER talk ». In this vein, I truly hope that 2018 will bring much more intentionality and coherence with respect to the inclusion of gender equality in all of our evaluation #deliverables. Likewise, I hope that evaluation commissioners as well as practitioners will start looking at the degree to which the program or policy design (not just implementation) has adequately (or not) integrated gender. To this end, a question on the compliance with the related #UNEG guidelines could be added under the Relevance criterion. Happy New Year!
Happy New Year to all of you!
