GDD Risk Mitigation Technical Note
This Gender Digital Divide Risk Mitigation Technical Note has been developed to address the constraints to women’s equitable participation in the national, regional and global economy. It offers practical steps, strategies and resources to be used by USAID staff and partners for mitigating the risks associated with women and girls accessing and using information and communication technology (ICT), with examples of on-the-ground solutions. This Technical Note offers:
- A “how-to” document
- An overview of the risks of ICT to women and girls
- Practical risk mitigation strategies
- Key documents
The Gender Digital Divide Risk Mitigation Technical Note is designed as a companion piece to the Gender Digital Divide Gender Analysis Technical Resource, which offers practical tools and resources to be used by USAID staff and partners, helping them to integrate the gender digital divide at every phase of the program cycle—into gender analyses with a WEEGE lens at global, country, and regional strategic planning levels; into program and activity design and implementation; and into monitoring and evaluation.
