Mainstreaming Gender in Local Development
Programming and Implementation
Case of Municipal Governance and Sustainable
Development Programme of UNDP, Ukraine

Activities of UNDP/MGSDP
Through community mobilisation approach the
stakeholders are mobilised

    participatory basis

    on participatory basis
  • To undertake participatory monitoring of the
    local activities
  • Local Ownership - Municipal Support Unit of
    partner municipalities implement programme
    activities at local level. Each local partners
    own its process/activities
  • Involvement of local/regional/national
    authorities in the process
  • Project provides support to strengthen capacity
    of its partners

    classes/sexes/religions are eligible

    people living with HIV/AIDS, disabled, children
    (youth), women

  • Accountability practicing public audit,
    participatory assessment
  • 2. Gender
  • Promoting womens participation

Tools Used and Justification
  • Situation Analysis (tabulated and graphic)
    provided by BRC and internalised in MGSDP process
    manuals
  • Selection criteria for Programme area HDI,
    ecological situation, social services, living
    conditions hardship
  • Methodology of local needs prioritisig by the
    partner communities evaluating productivity
    (basic need fulfillment), equity (gender balance,
    of members benefit), sustainability, ownership
    (peoples participation in the cost of the
    project)
  • Monitoring of beneficiaries male, female, poor
  • Public auditing and participatory assessment
    (accountability, leadership, support of poor,
    womens participation)

5
How Were the Tools Used
1. By terms of partnership with the community
organisations
  • 2. Through the institutional framework of MGSDP
    and ABDA to mainstream HRB and gender approaches
    fast and at low cost into the activities of all
    stakeholders

3. Through Municipal Support Units working at
local level
4. Through role model and success stories
5. Through capacity building and awareness
packages (exchange visits, specialised
literature, peer-to-peer learning, trainings)
6
Challenges Faced in Developing and Implementing
the Tools
  • Mindset of people is often constraining new ideas
  • No prior experience with ABDA in urban community
  • Finding suitable terminology
  • People tend to appreciate the opportunity of
    mobilising additional resources rather than
    valuing the process of good governance
  • Policy/legislation barriers

7
Lessons Learned
  1. HRB applying and gender mainstreaming is an
    education process
  2. There is strong interest among the stakeholders
    to utilise the technology offered by Project
  1. Mindset of people at all level takes time to
    change
  2. Champions in the respective areas should be
    involved in the process
  3. Demonstration effect is the best motivating
    factor

8
New Initiatives Planned
  1. Continue the awareness activities and further
    consolidate the established frameworks
  2. Assess the impact of implemented activities
  3. Establish multi-sectoral cooperation with other
    players (specialised agencies)
  4. Strengthen linkages with academia and ensure
    mainstreaming of our learning in the university
    curriculum
  5. Develop success stories for replication of best
    practices
