This section focuses on the importance of integrating gender and diversity considerations in the planning, monitoring, evaluation and reporting phases of the programme cycle. Building on the previous section which focuses on integrating and mainstreaming gender and diversity in programmes this section provides resources to guide users on how to ensure we adequately plan for gender and diversity mainstreaming, and how we adequately monitor, evaluate and report on our programmes to ensure we continue to increase our understanding of needs and capacities of the people and communities we are working with.
