Abstract

Gender equality ranks high on international and national development agendas. It has been enshrined in international legal instruments and declarations as well as national constitutions. There has been some gain in ensuring gender equality but glaring gaps still exist in many sectors.
Gender equality advocacy has consequently become central in discussions concerning development programmes because such programmes are about eradicating poverty and promoting human rights. This paper discusses gender in project planning and management. The paper is based on a review of relevant literature on gender in project planning and management. It explains some key terms and discusses the characteristics and importance of considering gender issues in project planning. The paper explains how gender can be mainstreamed in the project cycle before discussing the tools and methods used to do so. In the conclusion the paper reiterates the importance of gender mainstreaming in projects, acknowledging that not many projects have embraced it.
