A MANUAL FOR SOCIO-ECONOMIC AND GENDER ANAYLSIS
Responding to the Development Challenge
Barbara Thomas-Slaytor, Rachel Polestico, Andrea Esser, Octavia Taylor and Elvina Mutua
This book for socio-economic and gender analysis provides development professionals -- planners, organisers, educators, project managers, or community catalysts -- with concepts and tools to facilitate local empowerment and capacity-building to make their work more effective and appropriate to the needs and interests of local people. The Manual introduces a conceptual framework which makes socio-economic and gender analysis (SEGA) central to the processes of securing effective development. It offers 40 participatory tools and strategies for socioeconomic and gender analysis, provides mini-case studies of NGO development activities in different settings around the world, and suggests ways to clarify objectives and to measure effectiveness. The SEGA approach enables the development professional to conceptualise social and community change in new ways by highlighting the interconnected processes in environmental, social and economic change, and by clarifying the relevance of social factors in determining access to, and control over, resources.
