Gender Analysis Guide: A technical tool to inform gender-responsive environmental programming for IUCN, its members, partners and peers

Download in:





With significant inputs from colleagues in various Secretariat programmes, offices and units, this guidance was developed by the IUCN Global Programme on Governance and Rights (GPGR) gender team. IUCN GPGR supports implementation of the Union’s commitment to gender equality and women’s empowerment through knowledge development and dissemination; capacity building and technical support; policy guidance; and implementation of gender-responsive approaches through a wide range of programmes, projects and partnerships.

This guide is primarily geared for project developers, managers and implementation staff in IUCN Secretariat and Commissions, as well as IUCN members, partners and peers. It provides information, tips and tools that can help conduct and apply the findings of gender analyses.
This guide offers several distinct and coordinated sections, including:

  • A gender analysis overview;
  • IUCN’s recommended core domains of a gender analysis, with detailed descriptions in Annexes One-Six;
  • A dedicated section on GBV considerations in gender analyses; and
  • Templates for many common actions (e.g. recruiting a gender expert, developing an action plan,) with many more recommended guidance tools and resources embedded throughout.
