Peacebuilding, Governance, Gender and Protection Assessments
Peacebuilding, governance and gender (PBGG) integration constitute a core competency for CRS and our partners around the world. In addition, CRS considers protection, especially of vulnerable groups at risk of exploitation and abuse, to be a matter that should be addressed and integrated into all areas of programming. The agency has developed a second edition of basic, “good enough” guidelines for assessing conflict dynamics, governance institutions, and gender relations that will provide a deepened understanding with which to ground holistic, integrated projects.
These guidelines are designed to provide agency staff and partners a very short list of questions to consider when preparing a proposal. The questions may help them to contribute to transforming systems for social justice and integral human development, while avoiding doing harm. The publication includes glossaries of key terms.
