This guide aims to provide a structured approach to inculcating gender-responsiveness in local governments. It initially defines gender and development, the issues affecting women and families, and the role and mandate of the Sanggunian. It then discusses how the committee members can push the GAD agenda through policy making, planning and budgeting and cites the success of similar LGUs. Finally, it stresses the importance of network building as a source strength and support.
