Gender Mainstreaming, Plan 2010-13
SDC is promoting Gender Equality according to its policy. Gender gaps have to be closed in order to reduce poverty and to empower women. SDC implements therefore a gender mainstreaming approach by increasing the gender knowledge and awareness of staff and partners, the institutionalization of gender as a cross cutting issue and the promoting the gender responsiveness of all interventions.Therefore, SDC is optimizing the institutional mechanisms to monitor the impact of its projects and strategies on gender relations.
