Gender, Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning View Jacket

  • Synopsis
    How much have development programmes supported women in their daily lives, and in their struggles for equality and justice? Important though it is for development interventions to be accountable to funders, they are equally responsible to the women and men with whom they work. Monitoring and evaluation tools are needed, therefore, to examine the effects of development and humanitarian work on women’s empowerment and gender equality.

    Gender, Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning explores the tools and approaches used by different organizations to monitor women’s economic empowerment, incidence of violence against women and girls and other aspects of women’s empowerment. Contributors include experienced practitioners from organizations such as CARE, IRC, Oxfam, Helvetas and Womankind Worldwide.

  • Endorsements
    ‘This publication is very timely as it provides a well-articulated framework for integrating gender equality and women’s empowerment into development evaluation. The different chapters help to “square the circle” by addressing all of the methodological, political, organizational and ideological factors that affect the design and implementation of an effective gender-responsive evaluation strategy. It combines a review of gender-responsive tools and techniques, and reviews of different evaluation approaches that development agencies are currently using, with detailed case studies documenting experiences using different evaluation approaches. The publication will prove useful both to readers concerned with gender-responsive evaluation, as well as to those who are concerned with broader issues of how to improve the general practice of development evaluation.’
