How to design and implement gender-sensitive social protection programmes

A toolkit

This toolkit was produced as part of a research project funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID) (2008-2010) and the Australian Government, (AusAID, under the Australian Development Research Awards 2008) (2008-2011), looking at gender and social protection effectiveness in Latin America, Sub Saharan Africa, South Asia and Southeast Asia.

This toolkit aims to support policy makers, programme designers, and programme implementers to apply a much-needed gender lens to debates around social protection. It provides technical and practical guidance on how to intergrate a gender perspective into social protection from the first steps of designing a programme, to programme implementation, monitoring, and evaluation.
