The World Bank Group has increased investments in gender-informed operations and research in recent years. Impact evaluation (IE) is one important part of this momentum. Impact evaluations increase understanding of what works, and what doesn’t, to improve outcomes that are critical to increasing gender equality in different contexts around the world. Impact evaluations can drive and test innovation, and contribute to evidence-based practice and policy-making.
enGENDER IMPACT serves to:
1) compile IEs led or supported by the World Bank Group
2) organize IEs around priority areas for policy action highlighted in the World Development Report 2012 on Gender Equality and Development
3) distill standard information on all IEs so that lessons can be easily accessed and applied
