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 gender equality. “TRANSFORM – The magazine for gender-responsive evaluation” uses data visualization and concise evaluation recommendations to highlight good practices and lessons learned on what works for gender equality for transformative change. Produced by the Independent Evaluation Office, TRANSFORM features UN Women corporate evaluations and meta-analyses, along with 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.
