The evaluation titled “Real Time Evaluation of Gender Integration in the UNICEF COVID-19 Response in South Asia” by Dr Sonal Zaveri, regional coordinator, GENSA was assessed among the top ones in the Award category “Evaluation as transformation” and has received an honourable mention of the Award! It is particularly important as it has embedded feminist principles in the evaluation design.

The evaluation approach was “Real Time Evaluation” of gender integration, broadly based on the principles of Developmental Evaluation, leading to continuous learning and adaptive management, enabling the real-time utilisation of evaluation findings to course-correct and influence policy and programmatic responses in the SAR to the Covid-19 pandemic. It employed a rigorous methodology for evidence generation and ‘evaluative empowerment’ processes to deliver accelerated change.
