"Understanding the gender dimensions of vulnerability to climate change” activity

  1. 1. An organisational strategy to bring a gender perspective to all aspects of an institution’s policy and activities, through building gender capacity and accountability. Mainstreaming is not an end in itself but a strategy, an approach, a means to achieve the goal of gender equality. Mainstreaming involves ensuring that gender perspectives and attention to the goal of gender equality are central to all activities - policy development, research, advocacy/ dialogue, legislation, resource allocation, and planning, implementation and monitoring of programmes and projects. Gender Mainstreaming
  2. 2. 1. Harvard Analytical Framework aka Gender Roles Framework or Gender Analysis Framework • First framework developed in 1985. • WID efficiency approach. • Designed to demonstrate that there is an economic case for allocating resources to women as well as men. • Aims to help planners design more efficient projects and improve overall productivity. • It is a grid that maps the work and resources of men and women in a community and highlighting the main differences. • There are 4 Tools that make up the Framework. Gender Analysis Frameworks
  3. 3. Checklist
  4. 4. 2. People Oriented Planning Framework (POP) • Adaption of Harvard Analytical Framework (HAF), adapted for use for Refugee populations and to address the gaps of the HAF. • WID approach. • Designed to ensure an efficient and equitable distribution of resources and services. • Key factors are CHANGE and PARTICIPATION. • The POP Framework has three components: – The Determinants Analysis, (also called the Refugee Population Profile – and Context Analysis); – The Activities Analysis; – The Use and Control of Resources Analysis. Gender Analysis Frameworks
  5. 5. 3. Moser Framework • GAD approach. • Aim to set up ‘gender planning’ in its own right. • Questions assumptions that planning is a purely technical task. • At the heart of the Moser Framework are three concepts: – Women's triple role; – Practical and strategic gender needs; – Categories of WID/GAD policy approaches (policy matrix). Gender Analysis Frameworks
  6. 6. 4. Gender Analysis Matrix (GAM)- UN Women • GAD, inclusive and participatory approach. • Aims to help determine the different impact development interventions have on women and men, by providing a community-based technique for identifying and analysing gender differences. • Based on the following principles: – All requisite knowledge for gender analysis exists among the people whose lives are the subject of the analysis. – Gender analysis does not require the technical expertise of those outside the community, except as facilitators. – Gender analysis cannot promote transformation unless it is carried out by the people being analysed. (Parker 1993, 2) Gender Analysis Frameworks
  7. 7. 5. Capacities and Vulnerability Analysis Framework (CVA) • Similar to POP in that it was developed specifically for use in humanitarian interventions and disaster preparedness. • Aims to help outside agencies plan aid in emergencies, in such a way that interventions meet immediate needs, and at the same time build on the strengths of people and their efforts to achieve long-term social and economic development. • CVA is based on the central idea that people's existing strengths (or capacities) and weaknesses (or vulnerabilities) determine the impact that a crisis has on them, as well as the way they respond to the crisis. • Two Tools: – Categories of Capacities and Vulnerabilities. – Additional Dimensions of ‘complex reality’. Gender Analysis Frameworks
  8. 8. Gender Analysis Frameworks 6. Women’s Empowerment Framework (Longwe) • Aim to assess whether a development intervention is supporting empowerment i.e. what does women’s empowerment and equality mean in practice. • In the Longwe framework, development means enabling people to take charge of their own lives, and escape from poverty; poverty is seen as arising not from lack of productivity, but from oppression and exploitation. • The Framework assumes 5 different levels of equality: – Control – Participation – Conscientisation – Access – Welfare • There are two main tools.
  9. 9. 7. Social Relations Approach • Is intended as a method of analysing existing gender inequalities in the distribution of resources, responsibilities, and power, and for designing policies and programmes which enable women to be agents of their own development. • The framework uses concepts rather than tools to concentrate on the relationships between people and their relationship to resources and activities - and how these are re- worked through 'institutions' such as the state or the market. • Key elements of the approach are: – The goal of development as human well-being; – The concept of social relations; and – Institutional analysis.
