Evaluation of UNFPA support to the prevention, response to and elimination of gender-based violence
2016-2018; Multi-country; UNFPA
Itad is currently conducting the Evaluation of UNFPA support to the prevention, response to and elimination of gender-based violence, including harmful practices (2012-2017).
The evaluation provides an opportunity to ensure accountability to partner countries, donors and other key stakeholders as well as to the UNFPA Executive Board on performance against the current and past strategic plans. This is a particularly important evaluation as it is the first time UNFPA is assessing a broad thematic area within the organisation’s central focus. The evaluation will inform the strategic positioning of UNFPA in this area of work, reflecting the changing development environment and alignment with the 2030 development agenda.
We are following a theory-driven evaluation approach, centred on contribution analysis in order to assess the extent to which the UNFPA interventions taken as a whole have contributed to the achievement of expected results. We will be undertaking 14 case studies (four in-country, which are in India, Guatemala, Uganda, Palestine; two regional, in Turkey and Thailand and the other eight will be desk-based) to shed more light on implementation achievements and challenges. The evaluation is currently in the inception phase, with the pilot mission to India underway in Spring 2017.
