Gender-sensitive participatory impact assessment: Useful lessons from the Caribbean

  • Patricia Ellis
Article

Abstract

In this article, the writer draws on her extensive experience working in community development, with women in the Caribbean, and with using participatory methodology in training and research to examine the issues related to assessing the impact of development projects on men and women. She uses the example of training, research, and evaluation activities carried out with, and undertaken by, people in rural communities to illustrate how gender-sensitive impact assessment can be done.
