Gender mainstreaming

Gender mainstreaming: A how-to manual

The manual is intended as a handy summary of concepts and tools for gender mainstreaming. It is not intended to stand along but should be supplemented with other operational tools for gender mainstreaming.

the manual presents the main steps involved in mainstreaming gender concerns in ILO's work. It is not the purpose of this manual to provide, for each and every technical field within the ILO's mandate, specific gender analysis and planning techniques. It aims in a more generic way, to provide ILO staff with concepts and tools to define better gender issues in their work through gender analysis, and to formulate gender responsive strategies through gender planning.
