Gender-responsive Governance

Making LGUs Gender-Responsive: A Primer For Local Chief Executives aims to make clear the importance of being sensitive to gender in determining the needs and resources of the locality, in planning and carrying out programs, and in running the local government machinery itself.

This publication is a compilation of 10 case studies on the experiences of LGU which can be regarded as good practices in gender mainstreaming.

This guidebook gleans from the experience of agencies that sought to transform themselves into more gender-responsive organizations through a review of their mandate, structure, leadership, culture, resources and other elements.
