UN Women in Malawi CO, in ESARO, is committed to learning from evaluations. This Country Portfolio Evaluation was commissioned by Malawi CO, with the aim of contributing to UN Women's knowledge on what works to advance gender equality and women's empowerment in Malawi with reference to Malawi Country Office. The CPE report provides evidence-based information as an aggregation and synthesis of the recurrent findings, conclusions, lessons learned, good practices and recommendations from evaluation reports, progress reports, consultations with stakeholders and beneficiaries, and other sources collected and analyzed for the period 2018-2022 .The report has emphasized on the need to better coordinate and collaborate with multiple partners, within the UN system, government, CSOs and other stakeholders, based on their core mandates and comparative advantages as this facilitates efficiency, linkages, and synergies, in pursuit of the desired objectives. Such institutions possess the requisite organizational structures, minimum staff complements, basic knowledge and skills of existing programs to mainstream gender interventions within their core business, as well as wider geographic influence. This is also critical for national ownership and sustainability of interventions, beyond project time frame. This was particularly evident on projects where the CO partnered with line ministries and departments, gender and elections coordinating networks, such as Ministry of Gender, Children, Disability and Social Welfare (MOGCDSW), Ministry of Agriculture Irrigation and Water Development (MOAIWD), Gender Coordinating Unit for Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOGCN), Malawi Electoral Support Network (MESN) and Centre for Multiparty Democracy CMD). Future projects supported by the CO should maximize on this partnership arrangement for program successes.
