Gender and youth

Empowering women and youth is an effective pathway to addressing poverty and education, and to building more inclusive societies. At ADE, we systematically incorporate a gender-sensitive approach in our evaluations.

ADE has experience in conducting thematic evaluations focusing on policies to prevent gender-based violence and the marginalisation of women impacted by humanitarian crisis and displacements. ADE has also developed expertise to evaluate women empowerment indicators impacted through different types of programmes such as entrepreneurial support for women and access to water.
