USAID/Macedonia has contracted Banyan Global to carry out a country-level Gender Analysis to inform the Mission’s North Macedonia’s Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS) for FY 2020 – 2025. Findings from the Gender Analysis will inform the new CDCS, specifically potential contributions to the new presidential initiative for women’s empowerment. The CDCS will also provide practical recommendations on how to ensure gender integration throughout project planning, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation cycles. USAID/Macedonia is currently in the process of setting the parameters for its 2020-2025 CDCS and expects that the findings of the Gender Analysis would be used to inform Development Objective and Results Framework that will be developed in 2019. To inform the results framework, the Gender Analysis will address how gender relations, gender equality, and women’s empowerment issues may affect USAID’s achievement of sustainable development results.
