Gender

Gender equality is a European value but also a proof of aid effectiveness. There is evidence that gender inequality and poverty are closely related.
It is not just that women have lower incomes and are less wealthy; poverty in the narrow financial sense is compounded by women's lack of political power and unequal access to basic human rights; employment, information, social services, infrastructure, natural resources, etc. Addressing gender equality effectively will ensure aid is effective and benefits both sexes equally.

We would like to talk to you about gender transformative approaches to development which form an important part of the EU’s Gender Action Plan  - the GAP II.  As you know, these gender transformative approaches attempt to go beyond technical solutions to women’s empowerment and try to change the underlying discriminatory social norms that lie at the heart of gender inequality.
C1 has been working hard to integrate gender transformative approaches into the rural sector.  We would like to share with you a Brief we have written on the subject, and also to discuss with you some innovative ideas that emerged recently from a 3 day conference in Rome on gender transformative approaches.  We are very interested to hear from you about any experiences you may have had in contributing to social norm change around gender discrimination.
