Link: Supporting documents - Mainstreaming gender equality in Scottish Government funded international development projects and programmes: guidance note - (

This document outlines guidance for mainstreaming gender equality into its international development funding. It includes three key sections:

1. Gender Analysis

2. Aims

3. Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning

All applications and bids for SG ID projects and/or programmes will be scored against the minimum criteria aligned with the OECD DAC Gender Equality Policy Marker

The SG’s aim is to build more gender responsive (strengthens gender equality) or gender-transformative (changes gender-norms and power relations)[22] ID programmes, therefore it is expected that all programmes and projects will score at least a 1.

This means all ID programmes must ensure that gender equality is an important and deliberate objective. It is important to note that a principal score is not by definition better than a significant score.[23]
