Harmonized Gender and Development Guidelines for Project Development, Implementation, Monitoring and Evaluation, Third Edition

The Harmonized Gender and Development Guidelines (HGDG) for Project Development, Implementation, Monitoring and Evaluation was formulated by the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) in 2004 in collaboration with the Philippine Commission on Women (PCW, formerly the National Commission on the Role of Filipino Women or NCRFW) and the Official Development Assistance-Gender and Development (ODA-GAD) Network, with funding support from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Asian Development Bank (ADB). 

The HGDG was developed to provide a common instrument in integrating gender perspectives in development programs and projects among goverment agencies, donor organizations, and other stakeholders. It has been in use for more than a decade now and it has successfully facilitated gender mainstreaming efforts, including the recognition of the value of GAD checklists. From the eight (8) sectoral checklists developed in 2004, 20 sectoral checklists are currently being used. Since 2013, a number of government agencies have provided resources and developed their own GAD checklists tailored to the needs of their sectors such as the Agriculture and Fisheries Checklist developed by the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR), Tourism Checklist developed by the Department of Tourism (DOT), and the GAD Checklist for the Energy Sector developed by the Department of Energy (DOE).

Enhanced Gender Mainstreaming Evaluation Framework

The "Enhanced Gender Mainstreaming Evaluation Framework" is composed of two (2) sets of materials which are: A Handbook on the Application of the Enhanced Gender Mainstreaming Evaluation Framework; and the Toolkit on the Enhanced Gender Mainstreaming Evaluation Framework (insets). The GMEF is a tool to measure the extent of the gender mainstreaming efforts of organizations, both national government agencies (NGAs) and local government units (LGUs). It is also meant to assist the Gender and Development Focal Point System (GFPS) members in measuring gains and successes, as well as pinpoint areas for improvement in the way they mainstream the gender and development (GAD) perspective in their respective organizations.

In the Enhanced GMEF, new and emerging gender issues, new policy issuances (especially the Magna Carta of Women) are taken into account and outdated indicators in the old tool were revised.The reference indicators from the Participatory Gender Audit (PGA) and Gender Impact Assessment as well as the relevant descriptors of the GMEF Version 2001 were also used. It has also adopted the scoring system of the Harmonized Gender and Development Guidelines (HGDG) of “No”, “Partly Yes” and “Yes” instead of denoting only the absence or presence of a GAD element. This new scoring system takes into consideration the GAD efforts of

the organizations that are still underway, such as draft policies and plans to establish GAD mechanisms.
