This report investigates how to make incremental improvements to existing programmes and learn more about how they can benefit women, whilst continuing to build on what is already working in the field. This report recommends the following:

  • Results should be disaggregated by gender for all programmes.
  • Ideally, a country-specific diagnostic should be conducted before programme activities are specified.
  • Diagnostics should include simple primary research to fill data gaps and to test whether official procedures are implemented as written.
  • Where primary research is not feasible, a lighter touch diagnostic analysis should be undertaken using the many existing sources of information.
