Author: Evaluation Office
UNICEF is undertaking an evaluation of its gender mainstreaming policy in 2006/2007 following indications from the Medium Term Review (MTR) of the Medium Term Strategic Plan (MTSP) and Executive Board concerns that the implementation of UNICEF’s gender policy has been uneven.
The evaluation is composed of two phases. Phase One involved the Gender Mainstreaming Self-Assessment of five UNICEF Country Offices (CO) and one Regional Office (RO) in 2006: Barbados, Egypt, Kenya/ESARO, Pakistan and Turkey. Phase Two will involve a summative external evaluation that builds upon the findings and conclusions of Phase One. It will further examine the implementation of the gender policy and its impact on gender equality through six country case studies. Phase Two is scheduled to be completed in 2007. This report covers the findings, conclusions and recommendations of Phase One.
