EvalGender+ advances the work on gender-responsive evaluation through 5 task forces (1) Capacity Building; (2) Communication and Advocacy; (3) Fundraising and Networking; (4) Knowledge Management; (5) Participatory Evaluation. The task forces propose and implement innovative initiatives that help bring progress on gender equality and social equity to achieve the SDGs by 2030.
Capacity Development on Gender Transformative Evaluation with Cultural Relevance: A Global South-South Collaboration is an EvalGender+ project that was undertaken in two phases. In 2017, the project was part of the EvalPartners Peer-to-Peer (P2P) initiative with RELAC & REDWIM, AGDEN, and the CoE South Asia. In 2018, the project promoted by EvalGender+ finalized its second phase. The regional teams shared their experiences with other regional organizations and with the EvalYouth and EvalIndigenous groups.
This publication presents the interregional learnings obtained with the exchange of knowledge of the South-South P2P Project. In addition to the summary of the activities carried out in each region, the added value and the learning obtained are described according to the perception of the work teams, and some ideas and challenges are presented towards the future.
Communication and Advocacy
EvalGender+ members of the management group participate in conferences and workshops to promote gender-responsive evaluation and advocate for the use of EFGR evaluation to achieve the SDGs.
EvalGender+ hosted a side-event during EvalColombo, a three-day forum promoting parliamentarians' demand and use of evaluation, was held on 17-20 September 2018, in Colombo, Sri Lanka, on the importance of gender-responsive and equity focused evaluation, led by Alexis Salvador Loye, Umi Hanik and Rituu Nanda EvalGender+ members and UN Women Regional Evaluation Specialist for Asia & the Pacific, Sabrina Evangelista. As a result of the event, parliamentarians and VOPE representatives expressed commitment to advocate for a “No One Left Behind” approach in their evaluation systems through inclusive and participatory evaluations that also analyze power relations among stakeholders, and to advocate for evaluations of national gender frameworks or policies as a way for holding governments accountable for their implementation and accelerating achievement of Agenda 2030.
