Gender and Evaluations: What Can we Learn?

Welcome to the joint evaluation publication and panel discussion organized by the Development Evaluation Unit of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs (MFA) and Independent Evaluation Service UN Women. The event will be organized on Thursday 23 August 2018 at 8:30 – 13:45 in the House of Estates (Säätytalo), Snellmaninkatu 9-11. The event will consist of two sessions.

In the morning the results of the Evaluation on Improvement of Women’s and Girls' Rights in Finland's Development Policy and Cooperation will be published. The afternoon panel discussion will set the basis for a dialogue around the crucial role of gender responsive evaluation within the Sustainable Development Goals era and its follow-up and review processes within the framework of the High Level Political Forum (HLPF).

Please also remember to bring with you an ID for the Security check at House of Estates.
