UTV Working Paper
Gabriela Byron , Mulunesh Woldemariam
This report forms part of Phase 3 of the Evaluation of Support to Gender Equality in Swedish Development Cooperation, and is based on a two week field visit to Ethiopia in Oct/Nov of 2009. It is also an extension of the Country Survey prepared in Phase 1 of the evaluation, which provided an overview of Sida’s gender approach in Ethiopia, as well as gender aspects of individual programmes. Based on criteria agreed on between Sida and the evaluation team, two projects were identified for follow up in Phase 3. This study picks up where the Country study left off. It is an assessment of how gender equality is carried out by Sida in Ethiopia, using primarily the two case studies of the Sida-Amhara Rural Development Programme (SARDP) and the Productive Safety Net Programme (PSNP), both of which are operative in East Gojjam.
