Activity Design and Solicitation

The findings of the gender analysis conducted for the activity and project must appear across the components of the solicitation for that activity.

Integrating gender equality and women’s empowerment objectives, activities, and indicators into solicitations can be accomplished in a variety of ways. For example:

  • Spelled out in the problem statement;
  • Reflected in activity design and estimated budget;
  • Indicated by the requirement for staff expertise in gender integration;
  • Tracked by qualitative or quantitative indicators in performance monitoring; and
  • Addressed in the evaluation plan and reporting requirements.

Another important aspect is to ensure that evaluation criteria includes scoring on how well gender equality issues are incorporated.
