This guide sets out how to improve the design, implementation and monitoring and evaluation of joint gender programmes (JPG). It helps address some of the less tangible areas that are often constraints to JGP success, such as power dynamics and the need for coordination, negotiation, leadership, and accountability. Lastly, it also provides a wide range of examples from JGPs that have achieved positive results.
This guide is the first systematic inter-agency guidance on JGPs and was created based on requests from UN Country Teams (UNCTs), Gender Theme Groups and JGP coordinators for additional support. It is organized in 3 different sections and addresses the challenges and proposed solutions that JGPs encountered along with examples and other useful resources.
