This document looks at how to integrate gender into monitoring and evaluation at different points of the project cycle.
An effective gender-sensitive monitoring and evaluation system in rural development projects requires that the following activities be undertaken at different points of the project cycle:
- Stage I – identification and preparation: ensure that the benchmark survey or baseline study are gender-sensitive; undertake an initial gender study or analysis to identify the potential negative impacts of project intervention on women as well as men.
- Stage II – design and appraisal: ensure gender is integrated into goals and objectives and set clear targets; plan for developing capacity to address gender issues and to monitor and evaluate progress; set up a monitoring and evaluation system.
- Stage III – implementation: carry out capacity development exercises for integrating, and for monitoring and evaluating, gender-related issues.
Usage: Guidance for project implementation
