sectoral approach to gender mainstreaming

URI: http://eige.europa.eu/taxonomy/term/1359

Definition

The overall objective of the sectoral approach is to ensure that a gender dimension is integrated into the work of all governmental bodies and into all policy areas. This objective requires an effective commitment to gender mainstreaming by policymakers when devising sectoral plans and programmes, as well as the building/strengthening of the technical competencies of all those involved in the implementation of this strategy.
