Evaluation of the ISST project ‘Capacity Building in Gender Transformative Evaluation’ Completed

Area(s) of work: Gender

Duration: 30 December 2019 to 15 June 2020

Status: Completed

Funder/ Partner: Institute of Social Studies Trust (ISST)

The Institute of Social Studies Trust (ISST) approached Centre for Budget and Policy Studies (CBPS) to evaluate an online course titled Facilitating Gender Transformative Evaluations that ISST has been conducting since 2018. The online module aims to develop the capacities of evaluators and development practitioners by providing them resources and tools that can deepen their understanding of evaluation through the use of a feminist lens. CBPS will review all of these resources and tools, including the course content as well as the internal reports, to understand the objectives and the procedural details of the online course. The team will also interview course coordinators, convenors and mentors along with the participants to get their insight into the process, the challenges, and the knowledge gained from the course. The output of this evaluation will be a report that will assess the efficacy of the online module as well as to provide insight and recommendations into the next phase of the online module.

Report will be made available on request. Please contact Dr. Niveditha Menon for the same.
