TRANSFORM – The magazine for gender-responsive evaluation – Issue 1, June 2015

UN Women regularly evaluates its own work to enhance accountability, inform decision-making and contribute to learning on the best ways to achieve gender equality while strengthening the capacity of United Nations agencies and governments in designing, managing and using gender-responsive evaluations.

To enhance effective communication of evaluation results, UN Women’s Independent Evaluation Office developed TRANSFORM – The magazine for gender-responsive evaluation.

TRANSFORM aims to make more accessible good practices and lessons learned on what works for gender equality as identified by corporate evaluations managed by the Independent Evaluation Office, as well as in managing gender responsive evaluations. TRANSFORM will feature not only UN Women corporate evaluations and meta-analysis, but also issues specifically dedicated to gender-responsive evaluation.

In the first issue, the Independent Evaluation Office presents a review of policies, systems and practices promoting gender responsive evaluation in the United Nations and national evaluation systems. Readers learn how the United Nations system and individual entities continue to make progress in making gender equality a priority in evaluation systems. Readers also discover how Governments, voluntary organizations for professional evaluation and parliamentarians are working together to promote gender-responsive national evaluation policies and systems.
