Gender Integration Criteria

Descriptions of the conditions that categorize investments along a gender intentional continuum (gender unintentional, intentional, transformative).

Gender Integration Criteria

This Gender Integration Criteria sets up a continuum of three types of investments according to their level of gender integration. The tool describes the conditions that categorize an investment along this continuum at the design stage. The categorization of an investment is not based on how likely it is to achieve gender outcomes, but rather how strong the evidence is of the investment’s intention to address gender gaps. This tool can be used at any point in time to assess an investment’s level of gender integration, though it is best used at the design phase and in conjunction with the Gender Integration Guide and the Gender Integration Marker.
