Gender Analysis in Market Assessments

New Data Collection Tools

In the effort to investigate the linkages between gender analysis and market assessments in West Africa, the Regional Bureau, Dakar has developed innovative tools on gender and market assessments.

Gender was integrated for the first time in the Lake Chad Regional Market Assessment questionnaires in 2016. For details on the adapted questionnaire please see:

In addition to the new data collection questionnaires, a supplementary Technical Note (English, French) was created to support colleagues and partners in conducting future gender-integrated food security and market assessments. The Technical Note serves as good practice references for colleagues and partners intending to design gender and empowerment-integrated market assessments, either for WFP or cooperating partners.
