Guide on mainstreaming migration into development planning from a gender perspective
This Guide discusses how migration is mainstreamed into the Philippines development framework, particularly from a gender perspective. This requires mainstreaming M&D issues in every phase of the development planning cycle. In general, mainstreaming migration into the country’s development framework takes place in the following six phases: (1) Situation Analysis (2) Strategic Goals and Priorities Identification (3) Action/Program Planning (4) Resource/Budget Sourcing and Planning (5) Implementation and (6) Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E). Each step provides entry points for migration mainstreaming from a gender lens.To ensure that gender equality gaps are addressed in developing policy and program interventions, this guide also utilized the Philippine Commission on Women’s (PCW) Women’s Empowerment, Development and Gender Equality (EDGE) Plan 2013-2016 and the Philippines’ Harmonized Gender and Development Guidelines and Checklists.
