FAO Gender and Development Plan of Action (2002-2007)

At its thirtieth session in November 1999, the Conference requested FAO to prepare and submit to its thirty-first session in 2001, the third Plan of Action. In line with Conference recommendations, the present "FAO Gender and Development Plan of Action (2002-2007)", aims to realign concepts, approaches and institutional arrangements with the Gender and Development (GAD) approach now widely adopted in the UN System, and to put into place effective supportive mechanisms and monitoring arrangements for gender mainstreaming throughout the Organization.

The Plan builds on lessons learned in the implementation of the previous plans and the observations made by the FAO Programme Committee. It aims to strengthen the role and responsibilities in relation to gender mainstreaming of existing mechanisms for policy, programme and project review and approval, at both Headquarters and in the decentralised offices, by firmly incorporating gender mainstreaming into programme planning, monitoring, reporting and evaluation. A "Gender and development fact sheet" and a "Gender and development flash presentation" are also available.
