Strengthening Monitoring And Evaluation For Women’s Rights: Thirteen Insights For Women's Organizations
Women’s rights organizations are operating within a challenging global context where changes in the political environment are significantly influencing support for gender equality and women’s empowerment work. Conservative regimes are increasingly coming to power and aid modalities adopted a few years ago have severely restricted the access of civil society organizations to bilateral aid. Women’s organizations are therefore under growing pressure to demonstrate the “results” of their interventions in order to mobilize or sustain funding for their gender equality work.
AWID’s publication, Strengthening Monitoring and Evaluation for Women’s Rights: Thirteen Insights for Women's Organizations seeks to respond to this challenging global context by presenting some of the promising practices that came out of AWID’s action research initiative. This research initiative was launched in 2009 with the purpose of examining the M&E challenges face by women’s organizations. The publication also seeks to reposition M&E as part of our broader learning agenda, our politics, and as a vital expression of our accountability to our cause and our constituencies.
This is the second publication in a series of briefs on monitoring and evaluation (M&E). The first of these briefs Strengthening Monitoring and Evaluation for Women's Rights: Twelve Insights for Donors is available in English on our website
