A simple but effective monitoring mechanism is essential to ensure the success of gender interventions.
.Regular monitoring is needed to ensure that utilized strategies are pertinent and leading us the right way. It also enables responsive action, as and when needed. Applying a gender perspective is new to most people, including many new gender focal points. This deepens the need for mentoring, advisory support and creative constructive monitoring.
Effective monitoring and evaluation of gender progress involves identifying the gender results wanted at the onset of an intervention, developing gender-sensitive indicators, and collecting and strategically using sex-disaggregated qualitative and quantitative data.
