USAID strives to promote gender equality by making gender issues central to the achievement of strategic plans and assistance objectives. The Office of Agriculture has led the development of a series of briefs on effective practices to help Mission staff better design, implement, monitor, and evaluate programs that fulfill this objective. All briefs draw heavily on programmatic examples and work done through the Initiative to End Hunger in Africa Gender Assessment Synthesis Report (USAID 2010).
This guide is designed to help USAID agriculture officers better incorporate gender issues into solicitations and their technical evaluation. It is not an exhaustive presentation of the myriad gender issues that may affect a given project. It is not intended to cover all questions an agriculture officer might have, nor is it intended to be applied verbatim as a template. The level of specificity and types of information included in the procurement document depend on the type of instrument selected and is context-specific. It is therefore important to coordinate early on with the contracting/...
The following bibliography includes 33 tools from the gender advocacy community that are among the best practices for gender integration for policymakers and programming practitioners. There are four sections: policy and programming gender information; policy-specific gender information; program-specific gender information; and, lastly, gender analysis, audit, and assessment tools.
This report, based on research into CAADP (Comprehensive African Agricultural Development Programme)-aligned plans in six countries, carried out for ActionAid by Overseas Development Institute and the Future Agricultures Consortium, finds that the initiative is succeeding in generating renewed attention and ambition for agriculture - a sector that was neglected and close to collapse only a few years ago. Much-needed investments and important policy reforms are on the cards.
This Report points to four priority areas for policy going forward. First, reducing gender gaps in human capital—specifically those that address female mortality and education. Second, closing gender gaps in access to economic opportunities, earnings, and productivity. Third, shrinking gender differences in voice and agency within society. Fourth, limiting the reproduction of gender inequality across generations. These are all areas where higher incomes by themselves do little to reduce gender gaps, but focused policies can have a real impact.

Why Women's Perspectives Matter: This resource draws the links between gender and climate change and lays out why women need to be at the center of the climate change debate and policymaking. A must-read for activists, academics and policymakers.
Author: United Nations International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (2008). It is a well-known prediction that women in the developing world will suffer the most from the effects of climate change. What needs equal emphasis is the fact that women also represent an immense source of potential and power to combat the increased disaster risks that climate change will bring. This publication seeks to highlight initiatives that have successfully used disaster risk reduction as a tool to adapt to climate change and reduce risk and vulnerabilities in various parts of the world.
This paper, prepared for the UK Department for International Development’s (DFID) Equity and Rights Team, seeks to make the most of the available resources, pulling from them useful insights that could inform and strengthen future research on and interventions into gender and climate change.
