TRANSFORM – The magazine for gender-responsive evaluation – Issue 2, July 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 second issue, the Independent Evaluation Office addresses a critical topic: women’s economic empowerment, a critical subject not only for achieving gender equality but also for overall development and poverty reduction. UN Women Independent Evaluation Office undertook a corporate evaluation to learn from progress made so far and inform future work in this area. The evaluation covered all dimensions of women’s economic empowerment work in UN Women. It identified strengths and weaknesses and developed five recommendations intended to enhance UN Women’s work in women’s economic empowerment at both the national and global levels.
