Gender Based Analysis Plus (GBA+)
- Identify the key issue
- Challenge assumptions
- Gather the facts – research and consult
If information is not available, don’t abandon your analysis. Identify gaps in data and make data collection part of your initiative’s objectives and evaluation measures.
- Develop options and make recommendations
Using the data you have gathered, indicate how the options you propose respond to the specific issues you identified. Present your GBA+ findings to decision makers.
- Monitor and evaluate
Highlight data gaps and address unintended outcomes for diverse groups. Incorporate them into strategy renewals or management responses.
As GBA+ is an evidence-based process, it is critical to document your research and findings, including any consultations (formal or informal). List all individuals and organizations consulted, including notes from interviews.
Identify your target audiences, and tailor your messaging appropriately. Remember to share or discuss your GBA+ results within your organization. This will demonstrate due diligence, foster buy-in with stakeholders, and identify areas for further action.
