  1. 1. Gender in Project Design Jemimah Njuki Team Leader: Poverty, Gender and ImpactFAO-ILRI Workshop on Integrating Gender in Livestock Projects and Programs, ILRI, Addis Ababa, 22-25 November 2011
  2. 2. A Framework for achieving an optimal level of gender integration programs /projects /Activities Problem and context analysis Identifying priorities, setting goals and objectives Research & development Work plan and staffing Budget Monitoring, evaluation and reporting Gender strategy
  3. 3. Problem and context analysisPresents convincing and clear evidence-based arguments for addressing gender inthe proposalWhat are the key gender issues in theparticular context (from the gender andsocio-economic analysis)How does the constraint /opportunity beingaddressed differ for men and women?How are the potential impacts likely to differfor men, women and other groups?
  4. 4. Identifying priorities, setting goals and objectives• Defines gender-responsive goals and objectives and states whether gender is a stand-alone research topic (i.e. strategic gender research) or a crosscutting thematic research area in which gender analysis is used to inform an deepen other research themes (i.e. gender mainstreaming).• How might priorities differ for men and women (ranking, scoring etc) – Priority livestock species, products, technologies, markets, activities etc• Integrating gender in objectives (gender responsive, and gender transformative objectives) Develop vaccines for key major diseases in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Somalia
  5. 5. Identifying priorities, setting goals and objectives Integrated: Develop vaccines for key major diseases that are suitable for use by smallholders, women and marginal farmers in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Somalia Stand Alone: Develop, test and evaluate strategies for disseminating animal health information to women farmers in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Somalia
  6. 6. Research, Development and Implementation• Presents a comprehensive analysis of the approaches to be used for addressing gender• Two types of activities:  Integrating gender into project components • Priority setting • Training activities  Specific research and interventions on gender • Training of project staff on gender and gender analysis • Training men and women on gender relations to address underlying assumptions / cultural biases • Give women the opportunity /confidence to actively participate

Budget• Specifies the costs associated with staffing and capacity building needed to conduct the gender activities proposed.• Highlight any gender specific activities and the budget allocated to these• If these are combined n other activities, ensure there is clarity on what proportion of the budget is allocated to gender related activities
  10. 10. Monitoring and Evaluation• Present a plan for a gender-responsive M&E system for strategy level goals as well as thematic research areas and articulates clear plans on how the results of gender responsive M&E will be systematically used for: – Assessing impacts on interventions on men, women and other groups – design and development of programs and technologies – dissemination and adoption
