Extent of Gender and Development Mainstreaming in Local Government Units: Input to Technological University of the Philippines' Extension Services
The study aimed to determine the extent of gender mainstreaming in the 17 local governement units under the National Capital Region. Descriptive survey method was the research design and purposive sampling was employed to determine the respondents of the study who were members of the Gender and Development Focal Point System and the Technical Working Group.
A researcher made survey/questionnaire, validated and approved by experts in the field and the Gender mainstreaming Evaluation Framework tool from the Philippine Commision on Women were the instruments utilized. A total of 45 respondents represented the 16 cities and 1 municipality of the region.
Based on the findings of the study, it was concluded that civil status was the only variables under Respondents' profile found to be predictor of gender mainstreaming and none from the LGU's profile. Hence, the hypothesis stating that the profile of the LGUs and the members of the GFPS and TWG singly or in combination predict the extent of gender mainstreaming in the local government units is partially sustained.

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new and emerging gender issues, new policy issuances (especially the Magna Carta of Women) are taken into account and outdated indicators in the old tool were revised.The reference indicators from the Participatory Gender Audit (PGA) and Gender Impact Assessment as well as the relevant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.
