Event description

This event launched a new guide from the UN Women Independent Evaluation Service, titled “Inclusive Systemic Evaluation for Gender equality, Environments and Marginalized voices (ISE4GEMs): A new approach for the SDG era”.

With the advent of the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), there is a call for new approaches and methodologies to understand and evaluate combinations of these global challenges, their integrated nature, and their complexities. One such approach is ISE4GEMs, which brings together innovative systemic evaluation practice with intersectional analysis. It promotes transdisciplinary evaluation methods, rethinks systemic evaluation methodology, and introduces the Gender equality, Environments and Marginalized voices (GEMs) framework.

This guide introduces the new approach and includes both a summary of the key theoretical concepts and guidance and tools for applying it in practice.

The event included the co-authors of the approach—Ms. Anne Stephens, Ms. Ellen Lewis, and Ms. Shravanti Reddy—and a panel discussion on its relevance for evaluating in the SDG era. It was chaired by Ms. Jessie Rose Mabutas, Director, a.i., of the UN Women Independent Evaluation and Audit Service.
