Illustrating Insights: Evidence-Based Recommendations for Gender and Youth Integration

The colorful graphic presents evidence-based recommendations from the Gender and Youth Activity (GAYA) for integrating gender and youth perspectives. These recommendations aim to inform GAYA's intervention design and improve the understanding of implementing partners' needs and strengths. The recommendations include enlisting senior management and technical sector leads as champions, incorporating gender and youth competencies, collaborating across partners, utilizing social behavior change approaches.

Are you interested in learning more about how to integrate gender and youth into your activities?

Join the USAID/BHA-Funded Gender and Youth Activity (GAYA) on March 28th for our webinar Illustrating Insights: Evidence-Based Recommendations for Gender and Youth Integration. Last year, GAYA surveyed over 600 implementers to better understand the barriers that exist around the integration of gender and youth in development and emergency programs. Based on this formative research, GAYA identified action-oriented recommendations implementers can take to strengthen their programming.

During this 90-minute webinar, GAYA will share our latest resource that outlines key recommendations, strategies, and tools to address these challenges. Then you will hear from a panel of implementers about how they addressed such challenges in their work.

Simultaneous interpretation will be available in French, Spanish, and Arabic. A graphic recording will also be available to capture this important dialogue.
