Gender Equality for Development Effectiveness

This paper is based on an earlier one presented in Nairobi, Kenya in January 2006 to the Joint Meeting ofthe UN Inter-Agency Network on Women and Gender Equality and the DAC Network on Gender Equality.This version has been re-oriented and updated for consideration during meetings of the DAC Network on Gender Equality and the Working Party on Aid Effectiveness in Paris in early July 2006.

This paper will focus particularly on the aid macro policy environment, especially how to ensure that a gender perspective influences the manner in which key issues on aid effectiveness are framed and understood. It does not deal in detail with aid effectiveness implementation at field level, but provides some illustrations where relevant to the overall policy context
