Update of Sida Quick Guide on Increasing Women’s Access to Land
Sida has developed a compilation of own material on gender and development, for support to its staff and to partners/stakeholders. The compilation is gathered together under the title ‘Gender Black Box’. The documents mostly emanate from 2010 or earlier and Sida perceived a need to update them, as well as to create some documents on newly prioritised areas for gender equality mainstreaming. Sida’s Department for International Programmes and Policy Support commissioned Sida’s Helpdesk on Environment and Climate Change to update and/or elaborate four Quick Guides related to gender. Of these, the Quick Guide on Increasing Women’s Access to Land was updated by ORGUT. Sida’s Helpdesk for Environment and Climate Change is commissioned by Sida to assist Sida staff in integrating environmental (including climate change and disaster risk reduction) perspectives into Swedish development cooperation. The Helpdesk gives support, on demand, by providing advice and strategic guidance on environmental integration at policy, program and project level. It also supports capacity building, development of tools and methods for environmental integration and dialogue concerning environmental issues. The Helpdesk is managed by Gothenburg Centre for Environment and Sustainability (GMV) and the Swedish University of Agriculture Sciences (SLU) in collaboration with ORGUT.
