Banyan Global is implementing the Gender Integration Technical Assistance (GITA) task order under the Advancing the Agenda of Gender Equality (ADVANTAGE) indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract. GITA provides on-demand, rapid response short-term technical assistance (STTA) to the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Missions and Bureaus across sectors.
Under GITA, Banyan Global partnered with USAID/India to conduct a Gender Analysis from May to August 2019 to inform the Mission’s 2020-2025 Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS). Using Banyan Global’s tested gender analysis research tools, a two-person research team carried out in-country data collection to identify macro-level gender equality advances, constraints, and opportunities in the country across the following themes: health and water, sanitation, and hygiene; energy and environmental health; and economic growth. The gender analysis report provides findings and recommendations by USAID/India development objective and intermediate result and content on the integration of gender and social inclusion into the CDCS. The final gender analysis will be uploaded to this site once the USAID/India CDCS is finalized.
