Section 3 contains the following tools:
Section 3 includes a series of tools to guide intervention-level planning and programme design.
3.1 Criteria for gender-responsive programme strategy selection
The process of designing individual strategies is guided by key issues identified during the needs assessment phase. The process of selecting strategies also requires additional information to choose between them, particularly in acute crisis situations given the competing urgent needs, limited time and capacity. This tool provides a set of criteria to guide the selection of gender-responsive strategies.
3.2 Gender in theory of change and M and E frameworks
The theory of change and M&E framework for an EiE initiative should be gender-responsive to ensure the initiative reflects, monitors, and reports on anticipated changes in gender across results areas and the results chain hierarchy. This tool supports the identification of key components and considerations for developing a gender-responsive theory of change and M&E framework for an EiE initiative.
3.3 Gender-responsive EiE costing, cost tracking and cost analysis
After developing a gender-responsive EiE theory of change, with a logical framework and results framework, EiE strategies and activities (‘interventions’) need to be costed and budgeted. EiE costing8 needs to ensure all costs (total costs, unit costs, and ingredient costs) and budgets are gender-responsive.
This tool will help you track and analyze the ingredients and ingredient costs of EiE interventions – including how gender is differentiated in these costs over time in protracted settings. This helps with identifying the planned and actual costs of implementing gender-responsive EiE interventions. The tool provides a foundation of cost information to assist with further analyses which will help you understand cost-effectiveness and decide which gender-responsive interventions to scale up, why, how, and at what cost.
