TRANSFORM – The magazine for gender-responsive evaluation – Issue 10, May 2017

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 UN 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-analyses, but also issues specifically dedicated to gender-responsive evaluation.

Issue no. 10 focuses on the strategic partnerships of UN Women. Partnerships are an essential aspect of our work but are often overlooked when we evaluate the results of our work. The skill set, time and resources necessary for ensuring truly effective strategic partnerships are often underestimated.

In 2015–2016, the UN Women Independent Evaluation Office undertook a corporate evaluation of UN Women’s strategic partnerships for gender equality and women’s empowerment. The evaluation is intended to enhance UN Women’s approach to strategic partnerships with the aim of ensuring that gender equality is reached by 2030. It was also expected to contribute to an understanding of how UN Women’s strategic partnerships can facilitate a strong position for gender equality and women’s empowerment within the current global development context and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
