This booklet provides an understanding of what community and target group involvement – male and female – actually implies. It gives concrete guidelines on how to incorporate gender strategies and ensure community involvement in partnerships for development.

In addition, this publication aims to aid partnerships in the process of developing their project plan. Succeeding in incorporating the people’s perspective in project plans is not only likely to improve partnerships’ chance at obtaining funding for their projects, but will also greatly benefit the social and financial sustainability of the partnerships.

 

This booklet can help applicants of future calls for PPP facilities. Gender has gained a more central role in the application procedures of many facilities. Policy makers can find input on how community involvement can become an integrated aspect in the formulation of partnerships.
