3. Tool 1: Practical Risk Mitigation Strategies

It is extremely important to understand and mitigate the risks, and potential collateral damage, associated with closing the gender digital divide and connecting more women and girls. Tool 1 offers seven risk mitigation strategies that USAID staff and partners can undertake, as well as suggested actions to be taken and some examples of what has been done elsewhere. Each suggested strategy has been mapped to the ADS 205 and the 10 WEEGE Principles.
