Integrating gender equality and social inclusion (GESI) in forest and landscape restoration projects and programmes helps to ensure access to a diversity of knowledge; promotes the efficiency and effectiveness of these efforts; and incentivizes both women and men to contribute to restoration.

This brochure is a tool to guide monitoring the GESI strategy in forest and landscape restoration projects and programmes, relevant for both national and subnational efforts.

It includes a checklist to evaluate a programme’s attention to GESI and guidance on how to define specific indicators to track progress, based on the Reach, Benefit, Empower, Transform framework. A table of sample indicators is included.
