  • 4. Why Mainstreaming of Gender in Society Gender mainstreaming is the public policy concept of assessing the different implications for women and men of any planned policy action, including legislation and programmes, in all areas and levels. Mainstreaming essentially offers a pluralistic approach that values the diversity among both women and men.[1] 123 West Main Street New York, NY 10001 | P: 555.123.4568 F: 555.123.4567 The concept of gender mainstreaming was first proposed at the 1985 Third World Conference on Women in Nairobi, Kenya. The idea has been developed in the United Nations development community.[2] The idea was formally featured in 1995 at the Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, China, and was cited in the document that resulted from the conference, the Beijing Platform for Action. Particularly, the Platform for Action stated: In addressing the inequality between men and women in the sharing of power and decision-making at all levels, Governments and other actors should promote an active and visible policy of mainstreaming a gender perspective in all policies and programmes so that before decisions are taken, an analysis is made of the effects on women and men, www.carecounseling.com | respectively.[3] Kabani, Asif
  • 5. Why Mainstreaming of Gender in Society Most definitions conform to the UN Economic and Social Council formally defined concept: Mainstreaming a gender perspective is the process of assessing the implications for women and men of any planned action, including legislation, policies or programmes, in all areas and at all levels. It is a strategy for making women's as well as men's concerns and experiences an integral dimension of the design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of policies and programmes in all political, economic and societal spheres so that women and men benefit equally and inequality is not perpetuated. The ultimate goal is to achieve 123 West Main Street New York, NY 10001 | P: 555.123.4568 F: 555.123.4567 | gender equality.[4] www.carecounseling.com Kabani, Asif

  • 8. Strategy for Good practice examples for Pakistan 123 West Main Street New York, NY 10001 | P: 555.123.4568 F: 555.123.4567 | www.carecounseling.com As a strategy for achieving gender equality, gender mainstreaming involves a process of incremental change in policies, strategies and activities. The long term objective is that attention to gender equality will pervade all policies, strategies and activities so that women and men influence, participate in, and benefit equitably from all interventions. Documenting good practice in mainstreaming gender equality entails recording positive steps made towards achieving this goal. Although the policy, project or activity may not yet be perfect from a gender equality perspective, it is still possible, and important, to record positive steps in the right direction.

  • 9. Strategy for Good practice examples for Pakistan Good practice examples should document how gender equality concerns were made central to policy-making, legislation, resource allocation, planning implementation and monitoring of projects and programme. 123 West Main Street New York, NY 10001 | P: 555.123.4568 F: 555.123.4567 | www.carecounseling.com They should, if possible, document the transformational aspect of mainstreaming -the impact that consideration of gender equality aspects has in terms of changes to goals, strategies, actions, outcomes and impacts. Kabani, Asif
  • 10. Documenting good practice examples on the mainstreaming strategy A good practice example of gender mainstreaming could be actions which lead to a positive change in: •  •  •  •  •  •  123 West Main Street New York, NY 10001 | P: 555.123.4568 F: 555.123.4567 | Policies; Strategies / approach; Advocacy efforts; Legislation; Research and other analytical work; Statistics- greater sex disaggregation, improved gender analysis of data, or identifying gaps in the data base; •  Development of indicators and improved monitoring; •  Medium-term plans and budgets; •  Procedures and processes. www.carecounseling.com Kabani, Asif
  • 11. Documenting good practice examples on the mainstreaming strategy A good practice example could also document positive organizational changes necessary to promote gender mainstreaming, such as: •  Competence development on mainstreaming; •  Establishment of a gender unit or focal point with a clear mandate and necessary resources to promote and support mainstreaming; •  Indication of management commitment to mainstreaming; •  Establishment of accountability mechanisms; •  Development of guidelines, manuals, and other tools to support mainstreaming: •  Establishment of a resource base of relevant gender equality expertise for mainstreaming. 123 West Main Street New York, NY 10001 | P: 555.123.4568 F: 555.123.4567 | www.carecounseling.com Kabani, Asif
  • 12. Documenting good practice examples on the mainstreaming strategy Documentation of organizational change to support the mainstreaming process must go beyond simply describing the changes implemented to a discussion of the anticipated and achieved impacts of the changes. In the case of development of guidelines, for example, there should be discussion of the usage of these guidelines and the impact on day-to-day work. Good practice examples can also be documented on changes made to develop national environments conducive to the implementation of the mainstreaming strategy. These could entail: •  Provision of training on mainstreaming for line ministries; •  Developing the capacity of the national machinery to advocate for mainstreaming. 123 West Main Street New York, NY 10001 | P: 555.123.4568 F: 555.123.4567 | www.carecounseling.com Kabani, Asif

  • 14. Suggested format for documenting good practice examples A format for documenting good practice examples has been discussed. The good practice example (2 pages only) should follow the format below. 1.  Background on the overall intervention in which the good practice process/ activity takes place. 2.  The reason changes in relation to gender equality were required- related to achievement of social justice/human rights and/or effective achievement of the goals of the programme. 3.  The objective of the process / activity being recorded as good practice. 4.  The strategy adopted to achieve this objective. 5.  The outcome - specific changes as a result of the process /activity, and how these relate to the objectives set. 6.  The factors contributing to / hindering the success of the process / activity. 7.  Any ways in which the good practice activity could have been improved. 8.  Plans to follow-up the good practice activity and the potential / constraints in relation to moving forward. 9.  Any other lessons learned from the process. 10.  The possibility for replication or spin-off effects.
