Support to the Gender Policy


Many programs and projects are funded by the Belgian cooperation in the area of gender, whether in the framework of calls for projects, bilateral cooperation programs or whether developed by NGOs or by multilateral actors. However, there is no mapping or ex-post analysis presenting the results gathered, the best practices and the lessons learned from these projects. The analysis of past experiences should also help to select indicators required for following up the mainstreaming of gender. In addition, Belgian cooperation must prepare annually numerous reports related to the integration of the gender dimension, be they federal, European or international (United Nations).


On this basis, the two components for this policy supporting research are, to be executed simultaneously:

  1. The realization of a cartographic and analytical study of projects carried out in the field of gender by the Belgian Cooperation between 2015 and 2018;
  2. Technical and analytical assistance to (a) the implementation of gender-related reporting and (b) the use of the gender marker in the PRISMA database.


The results should lead to both an overview of the Belgian landscape in terms of gender, the formulation of recommendations and the creation of a guide.
