Key Results

Developing a WEE-specific results chain and strategic framework which can be integrated into the programme’s theory of change.By setting out the causal logic associated with enhancing empowerment, you explain how change occurs in your programme. When it comes to WEE, the causal logic can be different from the logic associated with reducing poverty. For example, we cannot assume that by increasing a women’s income she will automatically become economically empowered. It is therefore important for programmes to articulate parallel causal pathways in the programme-level Theory of Change.

To make it work requires commitment to gender mainstreaming and seeing Women’s Economic Empowerment as a constant element of programming and expected outcome rather than an add on component or an extra.

Elaborate gender analysis

The Alliance programme initiated its programming with a stand-alone gender analysis as part of the larger market analysis process. This allowed for the development of preliminary gender sensitized programming. In a new cycle of market analysis, all research outputs were fully gendered rather than just having a separate gender analysis. This was followed up with stand-alone analyses for those redions where the results illustrated the need for more in-depth information. Asa result, the team was able to set sophisticated definitions of their target group and design effective interventions.

There were deep changes relating to agency over income and spending habits. In the male farmer statements no negativity was detected in response to these changes as they benefitted the household as a whole. There was a discernable theme of moving from necessity to choice and items of growth, pleasure and leisure.
