Gender mainstreaming in projects is about using participatory approaches in all project stages. It aims to create gender-sensitive projects that help measure gender-related changes in society, politics, and economic participation, among other spheres.
Before starting, it’s key to have a basic understanding of what gender mainstreaming is:
it is ensuring that there are strategies and actions for ending discrimination at all levels and stages of the project cycle; taking into consideration men and women’s needs, desires, ambitions when decisions are made and resources are allocated.
