Gender equality and development

GENDERNET Practice Notes


The practice notes, prepared by members of the DAC Network on Gender Equality (GENDERNET), provide guidance on how to address gender equality and women’s empowerment in development co-operation.

The full implementation of internationally agreed commitments to gender equality, such as Millennium Development Goal 3 and the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), are essential to achieving sustainable development outcomes.


“Investing in the potential of the world’s women and girls is one of the surest ways to achieve global economic progress, political stability, and greater prosperity for women — and men — the world over.”
- Hillary Rodham Clinton, International Women’s Day 2010


New practice notes will be added to the collection as they are published by GENDERNET members. Note that although several of the practice notes are agency-specific, they are included here where their approach is likely to be of interest and relevance to others.
