CIFOR-ICRAF: Gender integration strategy: Approaches for research and development in a refugee context and other settings in Africa
Reports and Assessments
The purpose of this brief is twofold: to frame the purpose of gender integration for use in displaced and disenfranchised communities in Africa; and to specify how a theory of gender integration and transformation can be applied to specific program objectives, including the design and development of projects; design and use of data collection protocols; development and delivery of training materials; and communication and outreach. To that end, it is important to understand some key terms: gender, intersectionality, and the dynamics of social change. Each of these concepts help to define applied gender integration and transformation in a targeted manner that improves the impact and outreach of research and development projects.
