File Advancing Gender in The Environment: Gender in Fisheries—A Sea of Opportunities by Gateway Web Editor — last modified Mar 08, 2019 09:48 AM
Produced by USAID’s Office of Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment (GenDev), USAID’s Office of Forestry and Biodiversity (FAB), and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the guide provides an overview of the unique roles and contributions women make in the wild-caught fisheries sector. The guide also explains how persistent gender inequalities limit women’s economic empowerment, and increased risks of gender-based violence negatively impact the potential of women to thrive and contribute towards strong economies. Gender in Fisheries – A Sea of Opportunities summarizes research on the intersection of gender and wild-caught fisheries, exploring the ways in which fisheries offer important entry points to enhance gender equality and women’s economic empowerment while also contributing to more effective interventions and more sustainable outcomes. This guide will be an important resource, particularly for USAID missions and implementing partners working in sustainable fisheries management. Development practitioners can use the guide to access the latest evidence on gender empowerment and sustainable fisheries management; find tools and resources to conduct gender analyses; design strategic interventions to strengthen program design and implementation through the development of comprehensive gender action plans; and learn more about how to develop results chains to help programs define goals and refine assumptions.

File Wildlife TRAPS: Revised Monitoring Framework and Midterm Performance Assessment by Tracy Clark — last modified Jan 09, 2019 08:52 AM
Wildlife Trafficking Response, Assessment, and Priority Setting (Wildlife TRAPS) was launched in 2013 and is implemented by TRAFFIC, IUCN’s strategic partnership with World Wildlife Fund (WWF). Wildlife TRAPS seeks to increase recognition by authorities and multi-sectoral stakeholders that wildlife trafficking is a global issue that requires a multicountry, multi-sectoral, and multipartner response. This midterm assessment of the project began with a review of the existing theory of change and performance management plan. Through this phase, the assessment team developed a revised project monitoring framework against which progress and performance could be assessed. The second review phase focused on answering four essential questions about the project’s enabling conditions, monitoring and evaluation, and evidence.
