GENDER RESPONSIVE POLICIES, PLANNING, BUDGETING AND PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT IN NATIONAL INSTITUTIONS

INTRODUCTION

This module covers the theoretical and practical application of the concepts and principles of setting up and managing gender-responsive evaluation policies and systems

INSTRUCTIONAL GOALS

Evaluation is an essential aspect of good governance to improve learning and development effectiveness, transparency, accountability

and informed decision-making in support of achieving gender-responsive and equitable development results.

National development policies and programmes need to be informed by evidence on gender equality issues generated by credible national Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) systems.

Evaluations that uncover how national policies and programmes impact women, men, girls and boys are central for changing awareness and for decision-making.

They can be instrumental to improving the implementation of national commitments to achieve gender equality, social and equitable development.

The module is designed to equip participants with knowledge and skills to take on a strategic role in strengthening demand for

gender-responsive evaluation at the national level. This training is expected to be used in support of countries

continuing and emerging efforts to develop and strengthen gender-responsive evaluation systems. Users may include members of international, regional and national Voluntary

Organizations of Professional Evaluators (VOPEs), parliamentarian forums focusing on evaluation; national

evaluation systems and offices; and international, regional and national knowledge management networks focusing on gender and/or evaluation.

The module targets current and aspiring political leaders at all levels of governance: national/local/decentralized government,

national parliament. The module also targets other individuals, institutions and organizations that work with politicians.
