The main purpose of this thematic evaluation is to contribute to enhancing UN Women Nepal’s approach to women’s economic empowerment and strengthening implementation of the 2018 - 2022 Strategic Note. The evaluation will generate knowledge and organizational learning on what works and doesn’t to advance gender equality through women’s economic empowerment and leadership. Thus, the findings will be used for strategic revisions and programmatic decisions. The evaluation will also support accountability to donors and partners for implementation and results of specific WEE projects.
The overall goal of the thematic evaluation is to assess the effectiveness and sustainability of UN Women Nepal’s WEE programmes. To achieve this goal, the formative evaluation will focus on the following specific objectives:
1. Assess the relevance of UN Women Nepal’s WEE approach to advancing gender equality in Nepal in the context of federalism and the 2015 Constitution;
2. Assess effectiveness and organizational efficiency in progress towards the achievement of results defined in the 2014-2017 and 2018-22 strategic plans;
3. Analyze how human rights approach and gender equality principles are integrated in WEE area of work.
4. Identify and validate lessons learned, good practice examples and innovations of work supported by UN Women Nepal;
5. Provide actionable recommendations with respect to UN Women’s WEE strategies and approaches.
As many of you are aware, IIED and EVALSDGs are publishing a series of briefings about evaluation and the SDGs. The Briefings are designed to help promote effective conduct and use of evaluation in SDGs implementation, follow-up and review.
We are delighted to let you know that the 10TH EVALSDGs Briefing Paper is now available online at the link below. The title is: Equity-focused, gender-responsive evidence: a blind spot in VNR reporting. For this issue EVALSDGs partnered with the EvalGender+ and UN Women Independent Evaluation Service.
This issue analyses 46 Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs) presented at the 2018 High-level Political Forum (HLPF). Main findings include that, although monitoring is strong, evaluation receives almost no attention; VNR reporting is not incorporating evaluative evidence, particularly equity-focused and gender-responsive evidence; and that access to disaggregated data is a core challenge to tracking progress.
Nevertheless, countries are actively looking for solutions, recognising that gender equality is an enabler and accelerator in achieving all the SDGs; and that equity-focused, gender responsive implementation, assessment and evaluation of the 2030 Agenda offers an opportunity for transformative change to achieve gender equality and equity in the SDGs era and beyond.
The United Nations Educational, Science and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) invites qualified companies to submit proposals to conduct an Evaluation of UNESCO’s Action to Prevent Violent Extremism (PVE).
