  INEE Pocket Guide to Gender Assessment Report
INEE - 2013
The INEE Pocket Guide to Gender (PG) is one of the flagship INEE tools used in the Education in Emergencies field. With the input of many INEE members, INEE’s Gender Task Team developed this tool in 2010 as a quick reference guide to help practitioners make sure that education, as part of emergency preparedness, response and recovery, is gender-responsive and meets the rights and needs of all girls and boys, women and men affected by crisis. In order to continue promoting the PG, it is critical to understand who is aware of the PG, how it is being used and if and how it is institutionalized in plans and policies. To do so, the INEE Working Group on Minimum Standards and Network Tools and the INEE Gender Task Team embarked on a large-scale assessment of its usage. This report details the findings of this assessment.
