Mainstreaming gender in environmental assessment and early warning: Conceptual challenges and opportunities.

The purpose of this study is to assist the Division of Early Warning and Assessment (DEWA), a division within the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), in meeting its goals of incorporating gender mainstreaming throughout the entirety of its programme of work, activities, and products. Gender mainstreaming is best understood as a continuous process of infusing both the institutional culture and the programmatic and analytical efforts of agencies with gendered perspectives. Gender mainstreaming means taking gender seriously – and taking it into account in all aspects of the workplace and the work products of the institution.
