The wide-spread take-up of participatory approaches among governments, NGOs and other organizations across the development sector has created a need for quality assurance and evaluation into the methods used. This work addresses this need by critically assessing how women can be involved more appropriately and equally in participatory approaches and how gender issues can be tackled more meaningfully. The contributors discuss the importance of conceptual clarity, appropriate methods and methodologies, and supportive organizations and institutional structures. Written in an accessible style, this work features three sections which comprise: theoretical reflections on participation and gender; practical experiences and specific case-studies from Asia, Africa, Latin America and Europe; and institutional examples of how organizations are attempting to integrate gender-sensitive work in participatory modes of development, and related successes and limitations.
