Mediterranean Human Rights Network 0000026/00000027/00000028/0000
The Gender Mainstreaming Reference Toolkit is intended to serve as a resource document for assisting the EMHRN (Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights
Network) and its member organisations, as well as generalist human rights organisations, women’s rights organisations and other civil society groups, in
mainstreaming gender in their policies, programmes and interventions. As such, it is a both a knowledge and a practical tool. The GMRK is intended to
facilitate a process of internal discussion and ownership for gender mainstreaming as well as kick off internal Gender Mainstreaming processes within the
framework of Human Rights and other NGOs at the level of their policies (both internally and externally), their programmes and their activities. In doing so,
the GMRK provides necessary knowledge, tools and methods to discuss the key concepts of gender and gender mainstreaming. This may include for
instance exercises which require participants to undertake an analysis of the causes and manifestations of gender inequality within their specific contexts.
will be done for the purpose of understanding and informing the process of gender mainstreaming within one’s organisation.
ADB (Asian Dev. Bank) (2006): Gender, Law, and Policy in ADB Operations: A Tool Kit governance http://www.adb.org/Documents
ADB operations increasingly focus on improving the legal and policy environment for development Toolkit/Gender-Law-Policy-
in developing member countries (DMCs). It is important for ADB staff and consultants to recognize Toolkit.asp
the gender implications of their work on law and policy reforms.
Greater awareness of these issues can help
(i) ensure that proposed law and policy reforms benefit both women and men, and
(ii) identify opportunities to address existing gender biases in the law and policy frameworks for particular sectors.
The tool kit is intended for use in
• providing general background on the gender dimensions of the law and policy frameworks that influence
• identifying specific gender, law, and policy (GLP) issues in the main sectors that ADB supports
• providing background materials, internet links, checklists, sample assurances, and other tools
The tool kit is intended to build upon and complement the ADB gender checklists that have already been
developed for key sectors. This tool kit therefore supplements the gender/sector checklists to assist ADB
staff and consultants in more fully analyzing GLP issues in proposed loans, grants, and TA projects. The
tool kit should be particularly useful in designing program loans and sector development program (SDP)
loans, where law and policy reforms play an especially prominent role. The tool kit covers several sectors
for which gender/sector checklists have not yet been prepared, as well as the CPS process and capacity
development which are not covered in the gender/sector checklists.
ADB (Asian Dev. Bank): Gender Checklist: Health health project http://www.adb.org/Documents/Man
The checklist is meant to assist staff and consultants in implementing the Bank’s policy and strategic objectives th.pdf
on gender and development (GAD). It guides users through all stages of the project/program cycle in identifying
the main gender issues in the health sector and in designing appropriate gender- sensitive strategies, components,
and indicators to respond to gender issues.
ADB staff should use the checklist in identifying gender issues in the initial social assessment (ISA) during
the fact-finding phase of project preparatory technical assistance (PPTA). Consultants should use it in
carrying out more detailed social analysis during the PPTA. It should be emphasized, however, that not all
questions are relevant to all projects, and the staff or consultant must select the questions that are most
relevant in the specific context.
Guidelines on the preparation of gender-sensitive terms of reference for the ISA and the social analysis
are also included, as are case studies from ADB’s project portfolio, to demonstrate good practices in
mainstreaming gender in health projects. Other useful references are listed at the back of this brochure.

ARC International (2005): Gender-Based Violence Legal Aid: A Participatory Toolkit GbV emergency http://www.peacewomen.org/un/ng
This toolkit provides three tools and a step-by-step process to help field staff (humanitarian aid workers from all servie sectors -
health, social service, legal, security) design GBV services that will incorporate ―adequate, appropriate, and comprehensive prevention and response
strategies‖ with a multisectoral approach (and to ensure all camp programs integrate protection from GBV) One underlying principal of this toolkit is that
GBV services and GBV legal aid need to be implemented in a gradual and culturally appropriate manner to maximize effectiveness and to prevent harmful
consequences and backlash to the survivors from the community. A second underlying principle is that people in the community are the most
knowledgeable of the unique characteristics of their environment and how to best address them. Therefore, this toolkit uses a participatory approach to
both conduct a Preliminary Assessment of the given community and to design an Action Plan for that community. The toolkit
guides the user through a process of a situational analysis (assessment) and an action-planning exercise that includes identifying
problems, setting objectives, and laying out activities and timelines.

carrying out DDR. UNIFEM bfm_send/278
Women and girls are less likely to be identified as beneficiaries of DDR because overall they are less likely to own a
weapon, or fit the profile of an armed combatant who is stereotypically. The traditional profile of ―the combatant‖ fails to recognize that armed groups are
constituted of men, women and children, in both forced and voluntary capacities. Whatever role they played, women and girls are often classed as
―vulnerable groups associated with armed movements,‖ which fails to recognize that women undertake a variety of conflict-related tasks, including
providing essential services to fighters and the ongoing maintenance of armed groups. Gender experts and expertise should be deployed in the planning,
assessment and concept of operation phases of every DDR process in order to develop better intelligence- and data-gathering to more accurately reflect
on the demographics of combat groups (Gender-disaggregated data).

This Handbook is primarily for staff and members of national human rights institutions (NHRIs). The Handbook has three objectives. First, it offers practical
information and ideas that can assist NHRIs to fulfill their mandates to protect and promote women’s
equality through economic, social and cultural (ESC) rights. Second, the Handbook seeks to re-focus and re-frame the obligation to promote and protect
human rights in the specific context of women’s equality and ESC rights at the practical level. Third, by setting out the basic standards for NHRIs to uphold
in the areas of women’s equality and ESC rights, stakeholders will have better information with which to lobby. This Handbook attempts to help NHRIs get
better at answering these questions by providing tools and information about how institutions around the world are tackling these complex challenges.

engaging with men and boys may limit the effectiveness of development interventions , and may actually
intensify gender inequalities.
Development interventions which aim to improve women’s employment and income generating
opportunities, for example, are likely to compound women’s heavy work burdens unless efforts are made
to encourage men to take greater responsibility for child care and domestic chores. Projects that focus
solely on women may also reinforce existing gender stereotypes (women as carers, men as
breadwinners, and so on). Involving men, by contrast, can generate a broader consensus on issues which
have previously been marginalised as being of interest to women only – sexual and reprod uctive health,

FAO: Passport to Mainstreaming a Gender Perspective in Emergency Programmes Key Analytical humanitarian action http://www.fao.org/SD/SEAGA/
Questions for Designing Gender-Sensitive Humanitarian Interventions.SAEGA downloads/En/passporten.pdf
The purpose of these guidelines is to support humanitarian agencies in mainstreaming a gender perspective in the planning
and implementation of emergency programmes through a participatory approach. This involves assessing the implications
for women and men of any planned action, including legislation, policies or programmes, in all areas and at all levels.
This SEAGA Passport to Mainstreaming a Gender Perspective in Emergency Programmes is written for humanitarian workers who
work directly with local communities in emergency situations, and also for insiders such as community organizers and leaders of
local groups and institutions. It consists of key questions to be asked in an emergency situation for data collection to help guide
the design of emergency interventions so that they will be sensitive to gender differences. It forms part of the FAO /WFP
joint Guidelines on Socio-Economic and Gender Analysis for Emergency Programmes.
The basic questions are broad and provide a useful framework for any emergency worker to gain a full understanding of the
emergency situation at the field, intermediate, and macro levels. In this regard, the Passport is similar to other emergency guides.
The uniqueness of the Passport is that questions have been added to provide a gender perspective. Key gender questions are
highlighted in bold. Once the information has been gathered, to the extent deemed useful and necessary by the worker, it can be
utilized to help with the design of effective gender-sensitive emergency interventions.
FAO (2001): Irrigation Sector Guide. SEAGA agriculture project http://www.fao.org/SD/SEAGA/dow
The purpose of the SEAGA Sector Guide on Irrigation is to support gender-responsive participatory planning of irrigation
schemes, and to integrate socio-economic and gender issues in the planning process. The ultimate aim is to improve
irrigation scheme performance while strengthening the position of rural women and disadvantaged groups.This Guide is
written for the people who are involved in the planning, design and implementation of irrigation programmes. It is therefore
intended for irrigation engineers, members of multidisciplinary identification and formulation missions, staff of rural
development projects, government employees, staff of NGOs, and engineering and consulting firms.This Guide summarises
some of the lessons learnt, both positive and negative, which have been translated into guidelines for future irrigation
development activities. The Guide provides some practical tools to allow development agents to integrate socioeconomic
and gender issues into irrigation planning. It is, therefore, a document that complements existing guidelines and manuals
on irrigation development.
FAO (2001): Project Cycle Management. Technical Guide. SEAGA project http://www.fao.org/SD/SEAGA/
The purpose of this guide is to create a new synergy by bringing together project management practices and socio-economic
and gender issues within the conceptual framework of Socio-economic and Gender Analysis. This is achieved by drawing on
other theoretical perspectives and methods including project cycle management, the logical framework, rapid appraisal
techniques, participatory approaches, gender analysis and stakeholder identification.
The guide is principally written for practitioners at the operational level in government, Non Governmental Organisations (NGOs),
Civil Society Organisations and the private sector. It will also be of interest to people working at policy level and academicians.
The guide assumes readers have a basic grounding in the key elements of project management, gender analysis, rapid appraisal
techniques and participatory approaches; for a more detailed review of these topics, relevant texts are noted in the bibliography.

The purpose of the guide is to enable extension workers and development agents to contribute to addressing the rural
epidemic through agriculture and natural resource sector initiatives. Part 1 provides basic facts about the disease,
sources of risk of HIV infection and vulnerability to the impacts of AIDS in the context of rural communities.
Part 2 identifies participatory tools which enable extension workers to understand the disease in their rural communities
prior to responding to the epidemic in their work activities. The contribution of the agriculture and natural resource
sectors to addressing HIV/AIDS, and actions by the extension service to mobilise and strengthen these initiatives are
Part 3. An overview of the structure of the guide is presented in Figure 1. In addition to the main text, there are three
supporting annexes: Annex I provides guidance on the use of the participatory tools; Annex II presents examples of
completed templates; and Annex III provides links to other relevant FAO manuals and guides.
FAO (2004): Rural households and resources. A guide for extension workers agriculture M&E http://www.fao.org/SD/SEAGA/
The guide aims to highlight major issues affecting rural households, and to provide users with resources and tools for
collecting, analysing and sharing information about the constraints, opportunities and priorities faced by communities,
households and individual household members.
The guide promotes the use of gender-sensitive and participatory approaches as a means of achieving sustainable
development that puts people at the centre of the issues, analysis and solutions.
Part I outlines the relevance and interlinkages among extension, farmers, households, communities, development, gender
and participation. Futhermore it focuses on some of the major constraints that rural households face, and outlines some
key gender issues concerning basic resources such as water, land, credit/savings and time. It also provides sources of
information for improving household nutrition. It provides practical tips for conducting socio-economic and gender
analysis with communities, and gives some examples of ways forward.
Besides a glossary and Webresources and case studies it also provides Checklists for gender-sensitive project guidance,
which provides some guidance to those interested in specific project formulation and Checklist for HIV/AIDS in subsistence
agriculture, which summarizes which groups are vulnerable to the spread and impact of HIV/AIDS, and lists some possible
responses suitable for this sector.
FAO (2005): Livestock Guide. Planning with a Gender and HIV/AIDS Lens. SEAGA agriculture HIV/AIDS http://www.fao.org/SD/SEAGA/
The purpose of this guide is to support those working on livestock-related programmes and projects, particularly in the design
of these, so that they can more effectively respond to the different needs, priorities, constraints, and livelihood
strategies present in rural communities or households. This guide focuses on the collection and use of qualitative
socio-economic and gender-disaggregated data, particularly for use in project identification and design. However,
this does not negate the need for quantitative data collection and use, particularly in monitoring and evaluation. There are
other useful guides and training materials that are helpful for working on this.
This guide provides a brief overview of some of the key socio-economic and gender issues related to livestock production.
In particular, it considers the impact of HIV/AIDS on livestock production and related activities, as it is an overarching
development concern affecting all sectors, and increasingly all regions of the world.
To this end, the guide looks at some of the broad strategies that have been proposed for mitigating the impacts of HIV/AIDS
on food security and agriculture in terms of the role of livestock production.
The guide also includes pull-out checklists of questions to help livestock officers consider socio-economic and gender
concerns, particularly HIV/AIDS, in the design and appraisal of livestock projects and programmes. It also provides participatory
tools for field-based users in livestock-related project identification and preparation, and to a lesser extent, project design,
implementation and monitoring and evaluation.

Forced Marriage Unit, FCO (2009): Multi-agency practice guidelines: Handling cases of Forced Marriage human rights http://www.fco.gov.uk/resources/en/
These practice guidelines covers issues such as staff training, developing inter-agency policies and procedures, raising awareness and developing guidelines09.pdf
prevention programmes through outreach work.
This document seeks to supplement the Statutory Guidance with advice and support to front line
practitioners who have responsibilities to safeguard children and protect adults from the abuses associated
with forced marriage. This document sets out a multi-agency response and encourages agencies to cooperate
and work together closely to protect victims.
These practice guidelines should be used by all front line practitioners and volunteers within agencies that
• Safeguard children and young people from abuse
• Protect adults from abuse
Although chapters six to eleven are aimed at professionals working within health, education, police, children’s social care, adult social care and local
housing authorities, much of the information in the guidelines will be of use to those working within other agencies that have responsibilities to safeguard
children and protect adults.
The information and advice in these guidelines may also be relevant to non-governmental organisations
and voluntary organisations working directly with people trapped in, or threatened by, forced marriage.

Hunt Alternatives Fund (2007): Inclusive Security, Sustainable Peace: A Toolkit for Advocacy and Action. Peace & Security peacekeeping toolkit http://www.huntalternatives.org
This toolkit is a resource for women peace builders and practitioners to effectively promote peace and security. Directed to women peace builders and the oolkit.cfm
policy community, the toolkit outlines the components of peace building from conflict prevention to post-conflict reconstruction and highlights the role that
women play in each phase.
By providing clear, simple—but not simplistic—information, this Toolkit aims to be a resource to enable the strategic engagement of women in national
peace-building and security processes.
The main goals of the Toolkit are to:
• provide an overview of critical information and strategies for addressing key peace and security issues;
• bridge the divide between the realities of peace activists in conflict, post-conflict, and transition areas, and the international practitioners and policymakers
responsible for designing and implementing programs in these contexts;
• present issues in a user-friendly manner and demystify the ―policy speak‖ and terminology used by the international community;
• describe how women are affected by and contribute to peacemaking, peace building, and security processes; and
• highlight practical examples of women's contributions and offer concrete, feasible steps for fostering their empowerment.

This manual can be used by health educators, teachers and/or other professionals
or volunteers who want to work, or are already doing so, with young men between 15 and 24 years old, which
corresponds to the ―youth‖ age group, as defined by the WHO.
The manual has been divided into four subsections:
ii. Sexuality and Reproductive Health
iv. Preventing and Living with HIV and AIDS
Each sub-section contains a series of activities, lasting from 45 minutes to 2 hours, planned for use in groups of young men, and which with some
adaptations can be used with mixed groups. The manual seeks to understand the gender and gender specific roles and how they are reflected upon
reproductive health and sexuality. These issues are important and to link them with gender will develop critical thinking among young people.
Instituto Promundo (2008): Sakhi Saheli – promoting gender equity and empowering young women: a training manual. Population Council health workshop http://www.popcouncil.org/pdfs/hori
The Sakhi Saheli Training Manual aims to promote critical reflection among young women to understand and challenge gender inequitable norms in an
effort to reduce their vulnerabilities to HIV and sexual and reproductive health problems. It is an important tool for young women, facilitators and trainers
and other program implementers. The educational activities are based on participatory methods of learning with extensive use of role plays, games and
interactive exercises that engaged young women in discussion, debate and critical thinking. Through these educational activities, we seek to promote
critical reflection on the social construction of gender that promotes inequality and women’s vulnerabilities and to create support for challenging these
norms so as to enhance the agency that women have in adopting risk reduction practices.

broader society. However, media practitioners often find it difficult to make the link between women's position in religion http://ipsnews.net/africa/Focus/religi
and culture, and women's position in society. In this regard, the media has a critical role to play in challenging on/Gender_Religion_Culture_part_
inequality and highlighting areas of best practice. Religion has an extremely powerful influence over people's lives. These B.pdf
issues need to be factored into media coverage. The media is often guilty of ignoring these links in its coverage of religions.
The media is part of society, and like the rest of society, men have historically dominated it.
The media, with its ability to reach into millions of homes, is a powerful force in shaping attitudes. It can either be used to
maintain the inequalities in society, or be used to challenge them. Rather than being completely objective and impartial,
the media is shaped by the society.
This training manual is to assist the media in covering the often complex and sensitive debates around gender, culture and religion.
- Section 1 places the issues of gender, culture and religion within the current social, economic and political context.
- Section 2 provides an introduction to covering issues of religion, culture and tradition, and their impact on women's ability to
access their basic human rights.
- Section 3 Three addresses some of the major issues around gender, culture and religion, and provides guidelines and
suggestions for news coverage.

Laming, C. (2006): Shedding abuse: a course for men who use domestic violence - Ending domestic violence. Network Learning GbV men workshop http://www.eldis.org/vfile/upload/1/d
This course is based on a thesis written by Chris Laming. It is inspired by his work with SHED (Self Help Ending Domestics), an organisation that helps
men help themselves by taking responsibility and changing themselves and their behaviour.
Although SHED is based in Eastern Rural Australia the roots of domestic violence are universal. The original course had varying success. So far, 860 men
have attended for assessment and half that number have attended groups. Anecdotal evidence
suggests that some men made only cosmetic changes and others learned more subtle and devious means of controlling. But most changed and the
women and children in their families now feel safer and less afraid of them. The type of men who
succeed in stopping their abusive or violent behaviour are the ones who move beyond denying, minimising and excusing what they do, and who also stop

Trafficked Persons. A Practical Handbook. Poland s/odihr/2004/05/2903_en.pdf
The handbook defines suggested roles for governmental institutions and civil society in an NRM (National Referral Mechanism),
which can be a vital step in ensuring that the human rights of trafficked persons are protected.
It highlights key issues and describes the type of programmes and services that should ideally be available to trafficked
persons. It provides a political context, a methodology, and a description of the key legal and practical elements to be
considered when creating an NRM. Although the handbook is general rather than country-specific, it provides practical
examples to show that even where countries have different legislative and socio-economic contexts, all have an opportunity
to design and implement effective NRMs tailored to their national situations.
The handbook does not provide a comparative study on different anti-trafficking measures throughout the OSCE region, nor
does it claim to be exhaustive in all areas. At the same time, however, it does provide examples of what has worked effectively
in practice, based on the experience of the authors and a broad range of experts they have consulted. The experiences
of Germany, Serbia and Montenegro, and the Czech Republic are particularly relevant, but examples from other countries are

This Toolkit builds on a comprehensive research conducted by Ms. Chaman Pincha and her team on gender differential impacts of the Tsunami and
gender mainstreaming strategies of NGOs in Tamil Nadu in their Tsunami relief and rehabilitation efforts. The key
strength of this Toolkit is that the tools for gender mainstreaming in disaster management are sharpened by a bright and committed group of NGO staff
and grassroots women’s federation members, with their insights, experiences, emotions, and inputs. The process of working with the NGO staff and
grassroots women in developing these tools helped the author understand and address issues and facilitating factors in mainstreaming gender equity
considerations into disaster management policies and practices.

- and program monitoring and evaluation.
The assessment tools are meant to improve awareness of the nature and scope of GBV in a given setting, to assist in
gathering information about local attitudes and behaviors related to GBV, and to identify existing GBV services and gaps
in services within the community. The program design tools may be used for designing and implementing projects whose
outcomes meet intended goals, and for improving hiring practices within GBV programs. The program monitoring and
evaluation tools assist in evaluating program effectiveness, as well as in recognizing short- and long-term service utilization
and service delivery trends that may be used to adjust programming.
This manual should be used in conjunction with other GBV programming resources, accessible on the RHRC Consortium

This publication consists of four main parts:
• The first segment introduces the reader to the issue of gender and mine action; and why gender matters in mine action.
• The second chapter presents the in-depth country profiles of Colombia, Lebanon, Mozambique, Sri Lanka and Sudan. These snapshots
from five different mine affected countries show how gender mainstreaming is understood, recognised or rejected, implemented
• The third section discusses gender in each of the four selected pillars within mine action. Each pillar discussion includes good practices on gender
initiatives from the field, collected from the Swiss Campaign’s collaborating partners working within the
different areas of mine action. Suggested recommendations are presented at the end of each pillar discussion. In order not to duplicate the information
given in the Gender Guidelines for Mine Action Programmes, this publication should be seen as a complement providing readers with concrete examples.
• Concluding thoughts and some suggestions for further research are found in the fourth and final chapter.

representatives to analyse and discuss gender inequalities at the family, community and Union Parishad level. The reason for including the family and the
community context is that the members of these bodies also have a role to play in their individual families and as members of the community. At the
family level, the tool attempts to examine different roles and responsibilities of women and men in the domestic setting. It explores power relations in terms
of decision-making processes, control over assets and self-determination. At the community level it focuses on the mobility of women and men and their
status in the community. Finally, at the Union Parishad level, it looks at the roles and responsibilities of women and men in the Union Parishad and
Standing Committees, at the issue of participation of women and men in Union Parishad decision-making processes, access to Union Parishad services
who benefits from projects in which the Union Parishad is involved. The overall analysis serves to identify issues that the Union
Parishad and the Standing Committees can address to improve gender equity in the Union.
UNDP/Energia/SIDA (2004): Gender & Energy for sustainable development: A Toolkit and Resource Guide. energy Toolkit http://www.undp.org/energy/ge
This toolkit is designed to help planners and practitioners integrate gender and energy considerations into development f
programmes, including those focusing on energy improvements as well as other types of development programmes.
In many parts of the world, overall socio-economic development is limited by the lack of availability of modern energy services
such as lighting, cooking and heating, refrigeration, pumping, transportation, and communications, which is known as ―energy
poverty,‖ a condition that often has disproportionate effects on women and girls.
This toolkit and resource guide outlines the linkages between gender and energy in the context of sustainable development
and provides suggestions and materials on how to address energy poverty by integrating gender and energy sensitivity into
development programmes, projects, and policies.
Better understanding of differences in the ways men and women use energy in various cultures and locations can promote
greater gender equity and empowerment of women, as well as enhance the effectiveness of energy projects, poverty programmes,
and overall sustainable development activities.
The toolkit and resource guide is meant to be used by a variety of planners and practitioners involved in sustainable development
programmes, including multilateral and bilateral organisations (UNDP), government officials and decision makers, Development
project designers and implementers, NGOs and (women) community groups, donor organisations, private sector companies,
Gender specialists and trainers interested in energy issues.
UNDP (2007): Gender Mainstreaming in Practice – a toolkit. Part I general Europe & CIS Toolkit http://europeandcis.undp.org/gende
- present a comprehensive understanding of what gender mainstreaming is B2E5652990E8B4B9
- provide detailed guidance on how gender mainstreaming can be put into practice.
The toolkit achieves this through guidelines, case studies, examples, suggestions, and the presentation of relevant information pertaining to the region. This
toolkit is primarily designed for public policy and development practitioners who are not experts in gender issues. These professionals might work within
UNDP and other UN organizations on specific policy or development projects, or within national governments and other policy-making bodies. This toolkit
is meant to guide these professionals in their work. Because most users will not be gender specialists, the language, examples, and detail of the toolkit are
geared accordingly. At the same time, this toolkit will be interesting and useful to other groups concerned with gender mainstreaming: Non-governmental
organizations, advocacy groups, supervisors of policy makers and project staff, gender specialists and Students. It has been designed specifically for
practitioners in Southern and Eastern Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States (referred to
in this toolkit as ―Europe and the CIS.‖).

trade, education, health, energy, participation and governance, human rights, crisis prevention, HIV/AIDS, ..... They do not
attempt to be comprehensive, but give sufficient insight into the main issues.
They also contain case studies and illustrations of gender mainstreaming.
The Gender Briefs contain illustrations mostly specific to the Europe and CIS region. At the same
time, they also can be applied to global gender issues. Thus the Gender Briefs should be of interest
to a wider audience.
How are the Gender Briefs structured?
All of the Briefs are divided into ―sub-issues.‖ This is because most sectors deal with a variety of issues
that have distinct gender implications.

UNDPKO (2004): Gender Resource Package for Peacekeeping Operations. Peace & Security peacekeeping http://pbpu.unlb.org/pbps/library/GR
This gender resource package is designed to explain the concept of ―gender mainstreaming‖ to peacekeeping personnel at Headquarters and in missions.
It is a reference guide that includes background information and highlights key gender issues in each functional area of peacekeeping operations. The
package provides guidance on gender issues at the planning stage as well as after the establishment of a peacekeeping operation, and includes a number
of practical tools such as a gender assessment checklist for planning and guides to implementation. The package is of greatest relevance to
multidimensional peacekeeping operations, which have broad scope to integrate gender issues into mission policies and activities. Personnel working in
more traditional peacekeeping operations with more restricted military mandates would use this package to acquire a general understanding of the issues,
and might use specific chapters in their daily work.
The gender resource package is intended for use by all peacekeeping personnel, i.e., civilian, civilian police and military staff of all grades, as well as both
national and international personnel. In addition, the package can serve as a resource for UN political missions and UN partners and non-governmental
organizations (NGOs) working in conflict and post-conflict environments, as well as for donors, regional organizations, national governments and civil
society. The manner in which this package will be utilized will depend on the user.

This guide is intended for use by qualified health care providers (health coordinators, medical doctors, clinical officers, midwives and nurses) in developing
protocols for the management of rape survivors in emergencies, taking into account available resources, materials, and drugs, and national policies and
procedures. It can also be used in planning care services and in training health care providers.
The document includes detailed guidance on the clinical management of women, men and children who have been raped.
1 Identify a team of professionals and community members
2 Convene meetings with health staff and community members.
3 Create a referral network between the different sectors involved in caring for rape survivors (community, health, security, protection).
4 Identify the available resources (drugs, materials, laboratory facilities) and the relevant national laws, policies and procedures relating
to rape (standard treatment protocols, legal procedures, laws relating to abortion, etc.).
5 Develop a situation-specific health care protocol, using this guide as a reference document.
6 Train providers to use the protocol, including what must be documented during an examination for legal purposes.
UN Human Settlements Programme (2008): Gender in local government: a sourcebook for trainers - governance http://www.unhabitat.org/pmss/getP
How to mainstream gender in local governance age.asp?page=bookView&book=24
This Sourcebook aims at providing local governments with the tools to better understand the importance of gender in the decision-making process and to
reach better solutions for the communities they serve.
- participation in local government,
- land rights,
- urban planning,
- service provision,
- local government financing,
- violence against women and
- local economic development.
Each of these issues is introduced by a brief gender analysis. Numerous case studies illustrate what local governments can do. Reflection questions and
training exercises help trainers to develop successful training events. This Sourcebook can be used as a stand-alone tool to design gender training for local
governments. However, it is primarily designed as a companion to a number of existing UN-HABITAT training tools. As such, it is hoped that it will provide
valuable insights and resources for trainers and training institutions to improve their wide-ranging training courses, by introducing gender.
As it is assumed that many local government trainers are not experienced gender trainers, the Sourcebook provides an extensive
overview of gender concepts and tools. It also gives guidelines and tips for running gender training events and for integrating
gender into traditional local government training.

This Users’ Guide on Gender-Sensitive Indicators of Basic Service Delivery is intended to contribute to the development and more effective use of gender- nderSensitiveBasicDeliveryService_
sensitive indicators so that services are delivered more efficiently and effectively to women. The Guide targets a range of potential users. Two key target en.pdf
groups in particular are familiar with the use of statistics and indicators on gender and service delivery. One is UNDP and UNIFEM staff working with
national counterparts to use data and indicators to improve the delivery of services, monitor and Evaluate impact, and demand accountability from
governments and service providers. The other is government departments, donors and international agencies involved in developing, funding and
implementing service delivery programmes. Other important groups that have been generally poorly served in the past are also an important potential
audience. These include local governments, which are often most directly involved in the delivery of services; and end-users of the services, particularly
women. Both are likely to be less familiar with the use of data and indicators and may need to enhance capacity in this area.

The UN-INSTRAW Working Paper on Gender Training for UN Peacekeepers aims to provide comprehensive background
information about current gender training efforts for UN peacekeepers.
The training of military, police and civilian peacekeepers on gender issues is intended to improve their capacity to fulfill
the mandate of the mission through
• building ―a common understanding of the values/principles of equality between women and men and non-discrimination
based on sex;‖
• understand the social context in which peacekeeping operations are carried out (relationships between men and women)
• making peacekeepers aware of the positive/negative impacts that their actions can have on the host country/gender analysis.
Peacekeeping troops should receive gender-awareness training both during their predeployment training programme in
the troop-contributing country and once they arrive in mission. The arrangements for both types of training are reviewed in the

From writing a letter to the editor to planning and implementing a year-long campaign focused on changing how the media portrays

While the primary audience for this toolkit are organizations outside of the media that target the media for their gender activism,
the toolkit can also be of value to professionals within the media as a means of self-reflection and analysis on how the gender
