About this guide

The Eldis Gender Resource Guide is targeted at development practitioners, decision makers, researchers, and civil society involved in incorporating gender into poverty reduction strategies and development policies.

The guide aims to contribute to the analyses, research and debates on gender mainstreaming within development issues, through using a range of email and online tools to disseminate information. It does this by providing:

  • Access to relevant and up to date debates, research, impact assessments and announcements on gender
  • Presentation of key issues within gender and development which focus on areas of policy processes and gender analysis
  • Access to a broad range of related information through weblinks to organisations working in gender and development
  • Access to recent debates with a wide range of interesting gender related discussions and newsletters
