Institutional Capacity Development on Gender Mainstreaming Implementation Framework
16 September 2021
The institutional capacity development on gender mainstreaming implementation framework identifies three key elements for ensuring that gender is considered in all aspects of institutional performance: partnership, ownership and sustainability. It is a guiding framework that lays the foundations for enhancing the organizational environment to support gender mainstreaming and to serve as a practical means to help national partners effectively develop their institutional performance, using a structured and sustained approach.
This framework builds on the methodology of learning and participation. It aims to provide conceptual, practical and procedural knowledge to effectively guide gender mainstreaming at the institutional level. The framework is based on UN Women Jordan’s experience in assisting national partners to structure their efforts to manage GEWE and mainstream gender through institutional capacity development. The steps included within this manual are basic and flexible, to allow the content and mechanism to be adapted and customized according to institutional objectives and available resources.
