UN Gender Score Card to mainstream Gender Equality
(UNCT Performance Indicators for Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment):

The Scorecard is intended to provide an assessment of what the UNCT as a whole contributes to gender mainstreaming and consequently to the promotion of gender equality in the country. The main focus is on gender mainstreaming strategies and processes, rather than on development results. The Scorecard helps UNCTs become more aware of their own performance on gender equality and thus better positioned to take action in order to enhance their performance. The timing of the Scorecard is critical as the results can inform the review of the UNDAF and/or One Programme.
