The Gender Guide aims to provide a practical how-to for designing, implementing, monitoring and evaluating gender-responsive projects in marine and coastal resource management. It is designed to contribute to designing and rolling out human rights-based and gender-responsive approaches in marine conservation and development of fishing communities, to promote women’s empowerment and effective participation in the marine conservation context, to contribute to the elimination of gender-based violence in Blue Action funded projects, and to make measurable progress in achieving gender equality and gender-equitable outcomes within Blue Action-supported projects.
