Cameroon Ministry of Finance: Gender Mainstreaming

Our Role

In 2011, STRATEGIES! partnered with UN Women to examine and advance the Ministry’s gender mainstreaming capacity. STRATEGIES! facilitated a Ministry-wide workshop regarding 3 government studies that analyzed the Ministry’s gender mainstreaming capacity during planning, budgeting, and implementation of its programs and policies.


Through the workshop, Ministry officials were able to identify critical and realistic step necessary to improve their gender mainstreaming capacity. As a result, the Cameroon Ministry of Finance substantially improved their gender sensitivity and gender mainstreaming procedures during program and policy development, implementation and evaluation.
