Reflections on change: Meta-analysis of evaluations managed by UN Women in 2017
The purpose of the meta-analysis report is to aggregate and synthesize information generated from 2017 evaluations and transform it into accessible knowledge for future systematic strengthening of programming, organizational effectiveness, and the evaluation function. This is intended to help inform the implementation of the UN Women Strategic Plan 2018–2021.
The meta-analysis is based on 39 evaluation reports independently rated as satisfactory or above, according to the United Nations Evaluation Group (UNEG) quality standards. It provides a qualitative analysis of evaluation findings, conclusions, recommendations, and lessons. Further, the meta-analysis applies a quantitative assessment of development effectiveness based on widely accepted methods for evaluating multilateral organizations specified by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development – Development Assistance Committee (OECD–DAC).
