Secondary Data Review

Write great quality, useful gender analyses – in days not weeks.

In a crisis, everyone is moving fast. But gender analysis takes time.

By the time you’ve organised the field visits, set up the focus groups, analysed the data and written up the report, weeks or months have passed. And your colleagues have already created projects that don’t consider the different needs and aspirations of men and women, boys and girls.

Learn how to create gender analysis quickly, so it reaches more people.

By sharing the right information to the right people at the right time, you’ll increase your influence – and create better emergency response programmes that promote gender equality.

How do you do this? By writing a Secondary Data Review.
