SERVIR Launches Its Own Gender Analysis Tool
The SERVIR Gender Analysis Tool was launched on Wednesday, February 15, 2023. It provides SERVIR, a joint initiative of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), with tailored guidance on how to conduct a gender analysis. The tool will help to ensure that women are enlisted as co-developers in the service design process and that the geospatial services created will be responsive to the differentiated needs of women and men.
The tool was developed in partnership with Advancing Gender in the Environment (AGENT), a collaboration between the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and USAID, and in close collaboration with SERVIR staff from across its global Hubs in Amazonia, West Africa, Eastern and Southern Africa, Hindu Kush Himalaya and Southeast Asia. Though tailored specifically to the SERVIR program design structure, it can be used by colleagues working in geospatial and environmental programming who endeavor to use proven methods designed to build the integration of gender considerations in project design and implementation.
