Step 3. Project implementation

Documents on project implementation need to specify how the project is addressing gender gaps or women’s and men’s different needs in the intervention area. Managing authorities can support applicants by:

  • explaining that implementers must ensure that relevant sex-disaggregated monitoring data is being collected to assess the project’s indicators and objectives;
  • supporting project implementers to build gender competence, refining their understanding of gender equality, gender mainstreaming and the EU’s dual approach to gender equality, and of how to implement these approaches in practice.
