The scoping study was intended to help CGIAR mainstream gender across the CRPs. The three principal objectives of the study were to:
• Summarize previous recommendations to mainstream gender in the CGIAR system. Analyze the extent to which these recommendations were acted upon and how those efforts fared. Consider what has worked, what has not, and what barriers and enabling factors influenced past performance;
• Reflect on the quality of the gender strategies included in the CRP proposals. Provide guidance on how to effectively mainstream gender into the CRPs. Consider the types of financial support, technical assistance, capacity-building, coordination and supervision that will be required in order to concretize and promote gender analysis and mainstreaming in each CRP; and
• Recommend system-wide actions needed to ensure gender is mainstreamed throughout the CRPs.
