Since 1995, profound improvements in women and girls’ lives have been made in many areas, including in the law, in politics and the economy, and in health and education. Inter-governmental, normative advances and commitments have been instrumental in bringing about these changes; but the pace and scale of progress remains uneven and inexorably slow, with no country on track to achieve gender equality by 2030.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) call for bolder commitments and even bolder actions by all development actors to realize the full promise of the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development for people, planet and prosperity. As a force multiplier, accelerating progress on gender equality and the empowerment of women is fundamental to this effort. More than ever, systematic evidence and knowledge on what works for gender equality, why, for whom and in what circumstances is needed to catalyse equitable, inclusive, sustainable progress and amplify impact.

EvalGender+ has been working since 2015 to accompany development actors, decision-makers, grass-roots activists, students, and the entire global community in promoting gender transformative evaluation as an avenue to accelerate commitments to achieve the SDGs leaving no one behind. Gender transformative evaluative evidence has the power to ensure we are doing things right and doing the right things to achieve gender equality and the empowerment of women.

EvalGender+ works on three different areas in order to contribute to achieving the SDGs by strengthening gender transformative evaluative evidence to better inform country-led national policies, strategies and plans, and voluntary national reviews, for decision-making. The three areas of work include:

  • Advocacy and production of knowledge products related to gender transformative evaluation
  • Promotion of gender transformative evaluative innovation through a Small Seeds Funds for Innovation
  • Sharing and dissemination of knowledge, best practices and experiences

EvalGender+ works with a group of committed members representing voluntary organisations for professional evaluation from around the world.
