Regional : Monitoring and Achieving Gender Targets in Central and West Asia Operations

Sovereign Project | 54111-002

The subproject will strengthen the implementation and monitoring of ongoing projects and programs categorized as GEN, EGM, and SGE through the collection and review of semi-annual GAP updates, as well as provision of guidance to enhance the quality and presentation of quantitative and qualitative data reported. It will facilitate the preparation of gender achievements matrixes and narratives for effective reporting of gender equality results in project completion reports (PCRs). To ensure the systematic capture, processing of data updates of GAPs and other gender actions, and reporting these in the Results Framework Indicators (RFIs), the subproject will support the development of the CWRD gender database. The subproject will also support the gender capacity building of executing and implementing agencies (EAs/IAs).

Description The subproject will strengthen the implementation and monitoring of ongoing projects and programs categorized as GEN, EGM, and SGE through the collection and review of semi-annual GAP updates, as well as provision of guidance to enhance the quality and presentation of quantitative and qualitative data reported. It will facilitate the preparation of gender achievements matrixes and narratives for effective reporting of gender equality results in project completion reports (PCRs). To ensure the systematic capture, processing of data updates of GAPs and other gender actions, and reporting these in the Results Framework Indicators (RFIs), the subproject will support the development of the CWRD gender database. The subproject will also support the gender capacity building of executing and implementing agencies (EAs/IAs). Using lessons learned from the challenges in implementation, monitoring, and reporting on gender equality results, the subproject will enhance the integration of gender design features of projects, especially in challenging sectors such as energy, public finance/financial markets, and transport.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy By the end of 2019, the CWRD portfolio has a total of 157 ongoing projects. The sectors with the most number of projects are: transport with 50 projects (32%), energy with 32 projects (20%), water and other urban infrastructure and services with 29 projects (18%), and agriculture and natural resources with 22 projects (14%). The subproject will promote efficient and effective implementation and monitoring of 61 gender action plans (GAPs) of projects and gender targets of policy-based loans (PBLs) and results-based loans (RBLs) categorized as Gender Equity (GEN) and Effective Gender Mainstreaming (EGM), as well as deliver on the gender targets of 45 ongoing projects categorized as Some Gender Elements (SGE). There are challenges in the implementation of the GAPs which include, among others, limited capacity of EAs/IAs in implementing the GAPs, non-prioritization of PMUs/PIUs in engaging gender implementation consultants, unclear resources to implement some GAP activities, and lack of systematization in monitoring and reporting gender equality results.
