Gender Assessment – USAID/Cambodia

Share This Page

Banyan Global conducted a United States Agency for International Development (USAID)-wide qualitative gender assessment in Cambodia that included both a gender analysis of the mission’s current programming context and an assessment of how current USAID-funded programming was integrating gender equality. The specific sectors included in the research aligned with USAID/Cambodia’s development objectives: democracy and government, health, education, and economic growth and agriculture. The research also considered several key populations and cross-cutting themes: youth, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex  populations, gender-based violence, migration, traditional gender norms, high indebtedness constraints, and gender transformational outcomes and opportunities for women (including grassroots leaders) to move up the “value chain” of leadership. The completed gender assessment report supported gender integration in specific USAID/Cambodia activities, as well as in the larger USAID/Cambodia’s Country Development Cooperation Strategy.
