Definition

Gender monitoring and evaluation is a process requiring that the monitoring, reporting and evaluation practices of all policies and plans integrate a gender perspective both in processes and inputs as well as in results and impacts, so as to learn how programmes or specific projects affect women’s and men’s lives and to guarantee that inequality is not perpetuated.
