Ensuring fully inclusive and participatory evaluations is of outmost priority for IES. In support of these efforts, IES has taken measures to mainstream gender, human rights and inclusivity throughout its work, for instance through developing guidance for evaluators, including new guidance on inclusive, gender-responsive and human rights sensitive evaluations. See below.
The process of assessing the implications for women and men of any planned action, including legislation, policies or programmes, in all areas and at all levels. It is a strategy for making women's as well as men's concerns and experiences an integral dimension of the design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of policies and programmes in all political, economic and societal spheres, so that women and men benefit equally and inequality is not perpetuated. The ultimate goal is gender equality.
An overarching and long-term development goal. Gender mainstreaming is not a goal in itself but a set of context-specific, strategic approaches as well and technical and institutional processes adopted to achieve gender equality. Achieving this goal requires systematic and purposeful integration of gender at all stages of the project cycle from strategic planning, design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of all UNODC programmes and projects.
