Needs Assessment and Data Collection for Gender Equality
Now we suggest that you work with a new INEE-IRC-Women's Commission tool entitled "Ensuring a Gender Perspective." Developed for gender mainstreaming in education in emergencies, this tool can help you collect information to ensure that program design and implementation is gender-responsive and in line with the INEE Minimum Standards .
Review the checklist entitled "Information required to meet the Minimum Standards and to provide gender-sensitive education in Emergencies" (Needs assessment and data collection) on page 2 of Ensuring a Gender Perspective. Consider how the priority data suggested relates to your context and whether there are any gaps. Now adapt this needs assessment checklist as required for (a) possible program expansion into new communities or (b) as an emergency preparedness tool in the case of a sudden onset emergency in your country.
