Guidance Note on documenting good practices on Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment

The objective of the Guidance Note is to help all gender equality actors and advocates document good practices so that others may learn from these experiences and adopt similar approaches. The Guidance Note targets all gender equality and women’s empowerment advocates and actors who have successfully implemented interventions to accelerate gains for women and girls not only in Africa but across the world. These are interventions that have proven successful and thereby have the potential for replicability, scalability and further investments by stakeholders and actors committed to the integration of gender issues into development interventions and strategies. Specifically, the Guidance Note targets the United Nations, Regional Economic Communities and intergovernmental agencies, governments, Civil Society Organizations, private sector players, academia, men and boys, women and girls themselves and others working to find sustainable solutions on Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment. women’s empowerment helps guide all actors on gender equality and women’s empowerment on developing policy, programmes and legislation that better addresses challenges facing women and girls. This Guidance Note on documenting good practices is a useful contribution to exploring solutions and taking them to scale to maximize gains for African women and girls within the context of accelerating achievements and realizing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Agenda 2063. Further, the Guidance Note creates an understanding of what actions took place, when and the manner in which they contributed to a positive change in the lives of women and girls. The process of documenting good practices in gender equality and women’s empowerment must also capture challenges, risks and mitigation to contribute to learning by those responsible for the interventions.
