Banyan Global implemented the Gender Integration Technical Assistance (GITA) task order under the Advancing the Agenda of Gender Equality (ADVANTAGE) indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract. GITA provided 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 completed a gender analysis to inform USAID/Yemen’s FY2018 strategic planning efforts. Due to significant geopolitical and socioeconomic changes in Yemen over the last two years, USAID/Yemen contracted Banyan Global to update and validate the FY2018 gender analysis findings and recommendations. The update identified how the continued conflict has resulted in new constraints, opportunities, and best practices for gender equality and women’s empowerment. The mission will use the findings and recommendations of the analysis to guide the integration of gender equality and women’s empowerment into its Yemen Planning Approach, including into its activity design, implementation, and collaborating, learning, and adapting (CLA) approach.
