According to the European Commission, ‘gender mainstreaming is the integration of the gender perspective into every stage of policy processes – design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation – with a view to promoting equality between women and men. It means assessing how policies impact on the life and position of both women and men – and taking responsibility to re-address them if necessary’. Gender mainstreaming forms a critical part of the CHA identity and all of its projects recognize women as one of the most vulnerable groups in Afghanistan and therefore, prioritize their efforts towards them. Therefore, CHA has identified gender mainstreaming as a cross cutting theme across all of its program priorities in order to achieve gender equity within the country.
