GEI Powered by Evidence Podcast Episode 6: The Gender Lens: A Necessary Shift in Perspective for Development and Evaluation

The last decade has brought an important shift toward better integration of the gender lens into development interventions, policies, and evaluations. However, challenges, such as the lack of availability and underutilization of gender data, an absence of robust policies, and political complexities, persist during implementation. Join Dugan Fraser, Program Manager of the Global Evaluation Initiative, and Elena Bardasi, Senior Economist at the World Bank Independent Evaluation Group (IEG), as they discuss the progress, challenges, and way forward on integrating gender into development, evaluation practice, and national monitoring and evaluation systems. This podcast was recorded live in late 2023, as part of events commemorating IEG’s 50th Anniversary.
