Four medium-term objectives have been identified for the FAO Gender and Development Plan of Action:

THE PLAN WAS PREPARED THROUGH a consultative process involving FAO’s technical departments. Twenty-four Divisions revised their medium-term plans for the period 2002-2007, specifically selecting major outputs to incorporate a gender dimension. Divisions also provided verifiable gender-sensitive indicators for monitoring and evaluating the implementation of the Plan of Action.

THE BULK OF ACTIVITIES PLANNED fall into one or more of the following categories: capacity-building and development of curriculum and training material; development of gender-sensitive methodologies and guidelines; awareness-raising and institutional measures; information collection, analysis and dissemination; communication, participation and partnership-building; technology development and transfer, policy advice, and skills enhancement of rural women and men for both on- and off- farm employment.
