Gender and Information Communication Technology (ICT) Survey Toolkit

e-Agriculture's picture

The USAID has launched the Gender and Information Communication Technology Survey Toolkit which was prepared in collaboration with its partners.

It was noted that over 1.7 billion women in low and middle-income countries do not own mobile phones. Even in cases where women own mobile phones, they are less likely to make the full use of their full suite of services.

The gender gap impacts greatly on the developmental work, for example the USAID and implementing partners are increasingly using mobile technology and lack of access by women posses a great challenge in the fullfilment of various mobile phone reliant projects.

The purpose of Gender and ICT Survey Toolkit

"The Gender and ICT Survey Toolkit provides a set of resources for obtaining a landscape assessment of gender and ICT, providing implementing partners currently operating and planning on-the ground programming with practical, well researched tools they can use to obtain data on women’s access and usage of mobile phones and other connected devices. This data can be used to inform project design or create a baseline to understand the efficacy of an ICT intervention " - USAID
