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.
