BUILDING A SAFER WORLD: TOOLKIT FOR INTEGRATING GBV PREVENTION AND RESPONSE INTO USAID ENERGY AND INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS
This toolkit is organized into five parts. Each part can stand alone or serve as part of a whole if one wishes to read from “beginning to end.” The interactive format (described above) allows the reader to “jump” to the Part, or sub-part, of the toolkit that is most useful at any given time.
Part 1: Introduction provides background, purpose, and guidance on programming for GBV prevention and response in energy and infrastructure projects.
Part 2: What is GBV and how it relates to energy and infrastructure includes why this toolkit was developed, why GBV matters to energy and infrastructure projects, key best practices, and working with stakeholders.
Part 3: How to integrate GBV prevention and response into energy and infrastructure projects offers operational guidance for why and how to integrate GBV prevention and response in six subsectors of USAID’s energy and infrastructure portfolio: energy, transportation, building, water, sanitation and hygiene, urban development, and construction.
Part 4: Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning outlines USAID’s approach to measuring GBV in the energy and infrastructure sectors, reporting guidance, assessing and learning, and resources for GBV monitoring and evaluation (M&E), and learning and adapting.
