Evaluation Report Number 21
In 2005, UNFPA conducted its first-ever evaluation quality assessment (EQA). The assessment examined quality in 60 UNFPA evaluations making use of recognized international best practice criteria. The assessment also included 6 in-depth best practice case studies from different regions of the world. The assessment has revealed some important strengths as well as certain weaknesses in the Fund's evaluation work. The findings and recommendations from the evaluation are now being used among other things to strengthen the quality of evaluation practice and its link to programming within UNFPA. The publication includes a full management response to the report's main findings and recommendations.

An Assessment of Gender Integration in UNFPA Materials Produced Between 1997 and Early 2005
This report presents the findings of the evaluative inquiry carried out by the Division of Oversight Services in 2005 with the objectives to assess the quality, packaging and design of gender-related messages being communicated to UNFPA staff as well as the utility and utilization of these materials. The assessment was conducted using the 'appreciative inquiry approach', which seeks to identify what works well and what leads to good practices. The report presents good practices of communication of gender concepts and their mainstreaming into all UNFPA materials; reveals challenges and promotes a common understanding of what should be done at the organizational level to institutionalize strengths and achievements in current practice.
