Quick test of social protection systems on their gender sensitivity and inclusivity

This quick test is designed to provide well-founded indications of needs for adjustment or corrective action in a social protection system and its services, with a view to achieving greater gender sensitivity and inclusivity. This could initially avoid the need for extensive, resource-intensive analyses. A set of effective criteria have been drawn up as a testing instrument. These criteria can be used to rapidly and easily determine whether or not a social protection system is gendersensitive and inclusive. The criteria are not country-specific and are universally valid within the framework of a social protection system. The set of criteria comply fully with the requirements of the GIZ gender strategy.
