Introduction to GBA+

The GBA+ process

Now, let’s dig a little deeper into key elements of the GBA+ process.

Start thinking about GBA+ questions early. This way, it can be used to inform the entire policy process, from research and early investigation through to the development of options and strategies. It should also inform implementing (e.g. MOUs, terms and conditions), monitoring, evaluating and communicating an initiative.

It is important to remember, though, that is never too late to do a GBA+ and it can be applied to your work at any point.

Think big! Think big! Take your GBA+ even further and challenge harmful stereotypes. This approach is called “gender transformative” and represents the very highest standard of GBA+. Gender-transformative approaches help us break down systemic barriers to reach true gender equality.
