This paper describes the key results and lessons learned of the PSO funded project: Towards a workable Approach to Mainstream Gender in Natural Resources Management. In this one and a half year project (2010-2011) Both ENDS and partner organisations AMICHOCÓ in Colombia, ANCE in Togo and BARCIK in Bangladesh jointly set out to test a practical approach to mainstream gender in their work on natural resources management, each in its specific context and based on its specific ambition. The first chapter describes the background to the initiative. In the second chapter the reasoning behind, and steps of, the approach itself are explained. The key results of the pilots in Colombia, Togo and Bangladesh can be found in chapter 3. In chapter 4 and 5, our main conclusions and lessons learned, and our ideas for follow-up are provided. Gender concepts and definitions, more detailed information on gender analysis tools, and some personal accounts of people involved in the project are included in the annexes. [authors abstract]

Abstract

This paper describes the key results and lessons learned of the PSO funded project: Towards a workable Approach to Mainstream Gender in Natural Resources Management. In this one and a half year project (2010-2011) Both ENDS and partner organisations AMICHOCÓ in Colombia, ANCE in Togo and BARCIK in Bangladesh jointly set out to test a practical approach to mainstream gender in their work on natural resources management, each in its specific context and based on its specific ambition. The first chapter describes the background to the initiative. In the second chapter the reasoning behind, and steps of, the approach itself are explained. The key results of the pilots in Colombia, Togo and Bangladesh can be found in chapter 3. In chapter 4 and 5, our main conclusions and lessons learned, and our ideas for follow-up are provided. Gender concepts and definitions, more detailed information on gender analysis tools, and some personal accounts of people involved in the project are included in the annexes. [authors abstract]
