We at the Institute of Social Studies Trust invited Ranjani Murthy, feminist researcher and evaluator, to our workshop to share the participatory evaluation tools that she uses when she conducts evaluations. While many of these tools are used in participatory research and evaluations, our interest in these tools was to understand how these tools maybe used for gender sensitive and feminist evaluations. We are pleased to share with you the edited videos of the training, Ranjani conducted with us. We are sharing this in four parts. We are grateful to both Ranjani Murthy and to all our workshop participants for their contribution.

This is the fourth part of the toolkit which demonstrates the tool called Resource mapping

  1. Did you find the tool resource mapping useful? Would you like to use it in evaluations? If yes, how?
  2. If you have used this tool before, what is your experience in using this tool?

 We also request for your experiences, so that we can learn from each other. Thanks!

I am very grateful for this video. I am already familiar with the participatory research but to see it explained from a gender perspective is great! This video has given me valuable tips for my research on women farmers.

Thank you for this really important training resource. I was grappling with how to help local communities assess from a gender perspective the impact of development projects. I have watched you in action and with a bit more reading the whole thing makes sense. Are there any references you may recommend?

This is undoubtedly a powerful tool to use during evaluation.

Thanks are due to Ranjani. I enjoyed the video and picked-up some good tips ! I like to share with Ranjani regarding the type of participants in the session of resource mapping and about sharing our findings/ reports with the participants. As I see, the women group participated in this resource mapping; (a) is it also possible to invite men to see how they feel about it and do the mapping on their own thinking. That could be compared with the resource map prepared by women, and I think that would be very interesting to see and to analyze the situation. (b) would it be a good idea to share our findings  (and the report we develop on the basis of this resource mapping) with the participants. I don't know how many of us really share our report with the study respondents /participants; (c) what about the idea to further do the resource mapping with the same group of participants, say after one year, in the same place to see the changes happened during this time; finally, (d) what is really needed to materialize these ideas.

Please suggest.

Thank you for sharing this valuable training and gender sensitive evaluation tool! d intl is developing a database of gender mainstreaming tools, called g-tools, where we will share a wide range of gender inclusive and gender sensitive tools with our community members. The purpose will be shared discussion, best practices, linking and learning. We would like to include this tool in the database! Once we launch this new database, we will share with everyone where this g-tools resource can be found.
