Summary :

This report was designed to help practitioners who implement Community-Driven Development (CDD) interventions more explicitly define, discuss, and integrate gender-relevant elements in the design of CDD projects; be more effective in implementing and monitoring features that may affect men and women differently; and identify meaningful indicators and information to assess gender impacts.

CDD projects aim to empower communities, particularly excluded groups. Women are increasingly recognized as a group that CDD interventions need to reach out to with specific activities to ensure that they fully benefit.

World Bank-supported CDD projects actively pursue and generate high female participation. Understanding the quality and implications of that participation is central to assess the empowerment impacts of CDD.
