This online learning series hosted by UNICEF's Regional Office for South Asia aims to address several constraints and questions about gender and evidence:

1. Have you ever known what you wanted to do but just didn’t have the tools?

2. Have you known something is true but just can’t prove it?

3. Have you committed yourself to a long study but wished you had companions to share it with?

4. Have you been certain there was a lot of relevant material but needed help to find the best items?

If you answered Yes, Yes, Yes, and Yes to these questions - this is why UNICEF is offering a road trip to address these issues and more.

In the road trip UNICEF aims to create an informal atmosphere of free exchange under the guidance of peers who are themselves probing and working to solve gender and evidence issues. They have agreed to share their works in progress, their great ideas, their newly finalized tools and the results of recently completed evaluations and research. They are going to speak to unresolved gender issues where we struggle over how to overcome discrimination or social resistance or stereotypes or fear or inequitable laws and resource distribution or the hellish disruption of emergencies. They will engage with us about the core conceptual and evidence issues in gender, about cooperating wisely and completely across disciplines and agencies, and about breaking out of our silos to share and support one another.

UNICEF Innocenti will present Session 9 (5/28/2020): Using Implementation Science for Gender Impact: Case studies from the UNICEF Office of Research programs in stopping Violence against Women and Girls and in Gender responsive Social Protection

This online Road Trip is a collaboration between: UNICEF Regional Office for South Asia, UNICEF Regional Office for Europe and Central Asia, UNICEF Office of Research- Innocenti, UNICEF South Asia Country Offices, and UN Women.

Gender-responsive and age-sensitive social protection

Gender and age play a disproportionately large role in how people experience risks, vulnerabilities, and opportunities. A new four-year research programme to understand the intersections of gender inequalities and norms with ages and stages in the life course mean women and girls are at a heightened risk of poverty.

Can social protection be a driver of gender equality?

Social protection programmes have proven to be effective in fighting poverty in various dimensions, but the question remains as to how these same instruments can address other drivers of vulnerability, like gender inequality. Girls and women living in poverty face additional barriers which men and boys do not, driven by conservative social and gender norms and limited access to education and the workforce.
