dc.description.abstract"As part of the implementation review of its Policy on Gender and Development, ADB conducted rapid gender assessments of 12 projects under implementation in Bangladesh, Cambodia, Nepal and Pakistan to determine whether the inclusion of gender action plans (GAPs) in project design improve results for women. This report summarizes the main findings, lessons and recommendations from the four country studies. The assessments concluded that project gender action plans are an effective tool for gender mainstreaming. They provide a road map for implementation; assist to produce better results for women, help to achieve overall project objectives, facilitate institutional change, and contribute to overall sustainability. The assessment also highlighted that gender action plans should include specific targets and strategies for each project component with clear monitorable indicators; the need for inclusion of gender specialists in project teams to assist with the design and implementation of effective plans; committed leadership and ownership of GAPs by executing agencies and project teams.
