UNIDO, 2015 – 82 pages
All United Nations agencies share responsibility for improving gender equality and thus need to understand the relevance of gender issues to fulfilling their mandate. By systematically mainstreaming gender into its Business, Investment and Technology (BIT) interventions to strengthen Private Sector Development (PSD), UNIDO is contributing to ensuring equal opportunities for women and men. The aims of this guide are to:
- Explain what gender mainstreaming means for UNIDO.
- Describe how key thematic aspects of BIT/ UNIDO’s work relate to gender.
- Provide practical, step-by-step guidance on how to systematically mainstream gender into BIT projects.
