Regional: Enhancing Gender Equality Results in East Asia

Sovereign (Public) Project | 52171-001 Status: Active

The TA will address key and immediate challenges to maximize the gender dimension in operations in East Asia. It will have an operational focus directed at enhancing the identification of gender interventions in new projects particularly those in less traditional sectors for gender mainstreaming, and in thematic areas with fewer precedents and where innovative approaches to gender mainstreaming need to be pursued. This will be achieved through the provision of specialized expertise to selected operations for in-depth due diligence (gender assessment and integration), and development of toolkits in key thematic areas, to enhance the capacity of executing and implementing agencies for gender mainstreaming and social inclusion in the medium term. The TA will finance the rollout of a gender monitoring system and the associated training for executing agencies and implementing agencies.

Gender Equity and Mainstreaming Gender equity
Description The TA will address key and immediate challenges to maximize the gender dimension in operations in East Asia. It will have an operational focus directed at enhancing the identification of gender interventions in new projects particularly those in less traditional sectors for gender mainstreaming, and in thematic areas with fewer precedents and where innovative approaches to gender mainstreaming need to be pursued. This will be achieved through the provision of specialized expertise to selected operations for in-depth due diligence (gender assessment and integration), and development of toolkits in key thematic areas, to enhance the capacity of executing and implementing agencies for gender mainstreaming and social inclusion in the medium term. The TA will finance the rollout of a gender monitoring system and the associated training for executing agencies and implementing agencies. The system will facilitate tracking of gender actions and data aggregation for an overview of EARD's contributions to address specific gender gaps in the region. When operational, it will facilitate reporting towards corporate aims as articulated in ADB's gender operational plan 2013-2020. Monitoring capacity will also be strengthened through stocktaking of gender action plan implementation and follow up with projects experiencing delays and requiring detailed specialist support. The TA will support the capture of tacit knowledge from operations with relevance to future preparation of projects in priority thematic areas.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy ADB recognizes gender equality as a driver of change toward inclusive growth and poverty reduction in the region. The proposed TA will enhance the development effectiveness of operations in East Asia by making these more socially and gender inclusive. Specifically, the TA will strengthen the gender responsiveness of new projects in the People's Republic of China (PRC) and Mongolia, by identifying context-specific and relevant actions in a strategic manner. The TA will enhance the capacities of implementing agencies to monitor and document gender equality results and promote the systematic capture of knowledge directly generated from operations in the East Asia region.
