Gender Impact Assessment of the EU-Programme "Enviroment and Sustainable Development"

The EU ordered the 5th Framework Programme for Research to be examined for gender-specific implications. As part of this process, ISOE carried out a gender impact assessment (GIA) within the sub-programme "Environment and Sustainable Development". The scientists began by developing evaluation criteria and scrutinising the main areas of research for gender-specific approaches. Finally, they ascertained the participation of women in institutions and petitions/applications. From this the team drew up recommendations as to how the participation of women could be improved and gender aspects taken up in environmental and sustainability research.
