This guidebook is aimed primarily to help the agencies' Gender and Development (GAD) Focal Points, members of their technical working groups and other related GAD committees do their mainstreaming work. It presents the gender mainstreaming evaluation framework (GMEF) which can be used to track their progress and provides them with a holistic view of the gender mainstreaming process. It is most useful to technical people (e.g. planners, monitors, evaluators and analysts) who have a basic knowledge of GAD concepts. It is composed of three books:
- The Rationale Behind Gender Mainstreaming
- Applying the Tool to Assess Gender Mainstreaming
- Using the Tool for Gender Mainstreaming
Book 2 - Applying the Tool to Assess Gender Mainstreaming
Book 2 is the core of the guidebook. It describes the gender mainstreaming evaluation framework. It identifies the stages of gender mainstreaming and major entry points. A step-by-step guide illustrates how each agency may track and assess the progress and status of its gender mainstreaming initiatives using the GMEF tool.
Book 3 - Using the Tool for Gender Mainstreaming
Book 3 relates actual experiences of selected agencies as they address the challenge of gender mainstreaming. It presents issues that were encountered, and how these agencies were able to manage them. It also shows how the agencies were able to adopt the GMEF onto their own organizational systems, and facilitated mainstreaming in the process.
