EPF Gender Policy (continuation)

Gender mainstreaming is the process of evaluating the results of any planned action, policy, or program for women and men, in all areas, at all levels, before making a decision. It must take place throughout the whole process. It is a strategy to make the issues and experiences of women as well as men a component of policy-making, implementation, monitoring and evaluation. Gender mainstreaming is not an end in itself, but an approach to promoting gender equality.
