Gender Resource Package
This gender resource package is designed to explain the concept of “gender mainstreaming” to peacekeeping personnel at Headquarters and in missions. It is a reference guide that includes background information and highlights key gender issues in each functional area of peacekeeping operations. The package provides guidance on gender issues at the planning stage as well as after the establishment of a peacekeeping operation, and includes a number of practical tools such as a gender assessment checklist for planning and guides to implementation. Developed in close collaboration with DPKO field and Headquarters staff, as well as UN entities that specialize in women’s and gender issues, the gender resource package is intended for use by all peacekeeping personnel, i.e., civilian, civilian police and military staff of all grades, as well as both national and international personnel. In addition, the package can serve as a resource for UN political missions and UN partners and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) working in conflict and post-conflict environments, as well as for donors, regional organizations, national governments and civil society. This package represents a work in progress. Chapters vary in scope and level of detail. The package will be updated and refined periodically, and users are invited to submit comments or additional information and materials to the DPKO Peacekeeping Best Practices Unit (PBPS) at the following e-mail address: dpko-pbpuwebmaster@un.org
