Banyan Global is implementing the Gender Integration Technical Assistance (GITA) II Task Order, which provides on-demand, rapid-response, short-term technical assistance (STTA) to United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Missions and Bureaus across multiple sectors and in crisis and non-crisis settings.
Under GITA II, Banyan Global partnered with USAID/Haiti to conduct a gender analysis to inform the mission’s FY2020-2022 strategic framework. Using Banyan Global’s tested gender analysis research tools, a four-person research team identified advances, gaps, and opportunities on gender equality and women’s empowerment within USAID/Haiti’s priority sectors for the next CDCS. These sectors include: health; education; democracy, rights, and governance; agriculture/economic growth; environment; and infrastructure. The analysis focused on gender-based violence prevention and response, women’s economic empowerment, resilience, humanitarian assistance, and self-reliance as cross-cutting themes. It also focused on LBGTI, persons with disabilities, and youth as key cross-cutting populations.
