Strengthening national capacities for gender-responsive evaluations

The UN Women Independent Evaluation Office works together with national governmental and non-governmental partners to strengthen gender-responsive evaluation. By co-leading EvalPartners, the global partnership on national evaluation capacity development, jointly with the International Organization for Cooperation in Evaluation (IOCE) and other Voluntary Organizations for Professional Evaluation, the Evaluation Office promotes the demand, supply and use of gender-responsive national monitoring and evaluation systems.

By facilitating peer mutual support programmes and south/south initiatives, UN Women works to strengthen the institutional capacity of Voluntary Organizations for Professional Evaluation. Individual evaluators’ capacities, including on gender-responsive evaluations, are also improved through innovative and cost-effective e-learning programmes, as well as open knowledge management systems.

The UN Women Independent Evaluation Office also engages with regional Voluntary Organizations for Professional Evaluation and national evaluation systems.
