UN Women East and Southern Africa Regional Office Evaluation Knowledge Products

Within UN Women, we think it is crucial that our programmes are evidence-based and build upon lessons learned from previous interventions. Part of this process involves utilizing the lessons and recommendations from the evaluations we conduct. So, in 2015 the Evaluation Unit of UN Women Eastern & Southern Africa Regional Office developed a database on lessons and recommendations from 19 evaluations conducted in the ESA region during 2009 – 2015. Based on this evidence, we have developed a series of evaluation knowledge management products covering a variety of UN Women Thematic Areas, Operating Principles and Organizational Priorities. A series of 10 short programming guides with Top Tips and information from lessons learned are being developed and published in early 2016. Please see below for those published so far. We encourage you to use them in programming and to circulate amongst your partners. For any questions or information, please contact Ilena Paltzer
