AGENT provided gender technical support for USAID’s Regional Coastal Biodiversity Project in Central America (RCBP). This included a gender analysis for one of the project sites where information was gathered by conducting workshops and focus groups with local women and men. As a result of AGENT’s technical guidance, RCBP included information and strategies to address key gender issues, such as interventions to support women’s participation in local fisheries value chains and identifying gender indicators for its Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning Plan. AGENT also supported the project in leveraging entry points to mainstream gender into local sustainable management plans, which included gender being integrated in regional communications strategies on the importance of women’s roles and contributions toward the sustainable management of coastal biodiversity and related resources.
