The second stage of the Participatory Action Learning for Gender Mainstreaming process involves identifying and exploring key questions to explore in greater depth, lessons learned and good practices to document and share.
In Senegal participants at an initial PAL for Gender Mainstreaming workshop realised that men were often not included in nutrition programming. Convinced of the importance of fathers’ involvement in their children’s nutrition, they wanted to understand how this could be rectified.
The discussions also help identify good gender practices that could be documented to promote further learning.
Staff in the World Food Programme Kenya office had worked to promote women farmers' involvement in Purchase for Progress, a programme that supported local farmers to supply food for WFP initiatives. They decided to develop a dynamic visual presentation that could enable others to learn from their experience.
