UN Women Evaluation Handbook: How to manage gender-responsive evaluation

The UN Women Evaluation Handbook: How to manage gender-responsive evaluation is a practical handbook to help those initiating, managing and/or using gender-responsive evaluations. Although specific to UN Women evaluation processes, the Evaluation Handbook may be useful to international development evaluators and professionals, particularly those working on gender equality, women's empowerment and human rights.

The UN Women Evaluation Handbook is being launched at an opportune time, as 2015 is a key year in the development landscape when it is expected that a transformative development agenda will be adopted. The year 2015 has also been named the International Year of Evaluation. Thus, it is a time to advocate and promote gender-responsive evaluation and evidence-based policy making. It is a time to reflect on how we can build strong systems for generating and using evidence and most importantly use this information to improve the work we do to achieve gender equality and women’s empowerment. Gender-responsive evaluation is a powerful tool for achieving this transformative agenda.
