About the Event

This session will focus on different approaches that evaluation can use to help uncover changes in processes that influence gender performance and promote gender-transformative results.
Building on the example of the recent thematic evaluation of IFAD’s support to Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment (GEWE) and on the evaluation of CGIAR GENDER Platform, the session will address the following questions:

  • How can evaluations serve as catalysts for transformation by informing future policies, strategies, and interventions?
  • How can Feminist evaluation approaches encourage reflective, empowering, collaborative, and participatory processes that actively support social justice agendas?
  • How to ensure that the voices of different groups are heard in the evaluation process (concept of intersectionality)?


  • Svetlana Negroustouvea, Independent Evaluation Lead (IAES/CGIAR)
  • Monica Lomena-Gelis, Senior Evaluation Officer, IFAD
