Tools of gender analysis: A guide to field methods for bringing gender into sustainable resource management
MetadataShow full item record
The paper describes a number of tools of gender analysis with samples from studies conducted in Kenya, Philippines, Nepal and Honduras. The gender tools used include in-depth household interviews used to understand the role that gender plays. Participant observations and focus groups were used to discover perceptions and opinions of gender roles. In order to create a visual representation of men and women's complementary and conflicting relationships, the authors applied gender resource mapping. To assure validity of the findings, the researchers conducted confirmation surveys to a random sample of participants. The gender-disaggregated seasonal activities calendar identifies tasks and responsibilities by season, gender, age, and intensity of activity. The activities, resources and benefits are in-depth analyses used to gather information about livelihoods and resource management activities of key clusters in the community. Integrating gender to improve project management requires empowerment and capacity building, gender sensitive monitoring and evaluation, and questionnaires.
