TRANSFORM – The magazine for gender-responsive evaluation – Issue 7, August 2016

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 (IEO) 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 IEO, as well as in managing gender responsive evaluations. TRANSFORM features not only UN Women corporate evaluations and meta-analysis, but also issues specifically dedicated to gender-responsive evaluation.

Issue no. 7 aims to make more accessible conclusions and recommendations from the recently concluded evaluation of UN Women’s contribution to UN system coordination on gender equality and the empowerment of women (GEEW). The evaluation assessed the relevance, effectiveness and organizational efficiency of UN Women’s UN coordination mandate on GEEW. The report provides seven main conclusions and eight recommendations; it also presents the management response to the evaluation.
