If you want to learn how gender equality relates to your area of work, you have come to the right place. In this section we highlight gender challenges in 19 policy areas, ranging from fisheries to culture. We also give recommendations on how to best address these challenges. We have developed many practical tools to help you integrate a gender perspective into all stages of policymaking and strategic planning. Our step-by-step toolkits will guide you through the process. Feel free to use them to make your organisation more gender-sensitive.
