Conceptual Framework

Gender-transformative approaches can be tailored to specific contexts as there is no one-size-fits-all. The guidelines in this document are intended to support NIPN platforms teams to better address gender in the daily work of data management and dissemination, also including relevant aspects of gender-transformative approaches, where feasible. However, adaptation to the local context is necessary.

Transforming gender norms and archaic roles and stereotypes is a long-term process, requiring sustainable efforts to maintain the achievements obtained. While tangible results will be visible only over the course of years, NIPN platforms can play a role in contributing to gender equality by maintaining a gender lens over the project cycle and raising awareness among partners and stakeholders involved in the NIPN initiative.
