Table of Contents
The following shall be observed in the crafting of the DepEd GAD Plan and Budget:
- The gender issues/GAD mandates and corresponding GAD programs and activities and projects (Pas) to be included in the GPB should be within the context of the agency’s mandates. In identifying gender issues and corresponding GAD PAPs, agencies shall include those that directly respond to mandates provided in international and national laws, commitment and plans on women and gender equality.
- The identification of gender issues and GAD PAPs shall also be informed by results of gender analysis and gender audit, particularly the application of the Gender Mainstreaming Evaluation Framework (GMEF)
- The GAD PAPs should be contributory to the DepEd GAD goal which aims to ultimately reduce disparities in enrolment, completion, participation cohort survival and learning achievement between boys and girls.
