  • Overall project outcomes defined in the project logical framework
  • Key gender gaps that could be addressed through the project 
  • Any potential differential effects (including unintended or negative consequences) on women, men, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) persons, and others.
