Abstract:

This Guideline is a collaborative effort between UNDP, the International
Labour Organization, the International Organization for Migration and the Southern African Institute for Environmental Assessment, which has been developed for the benefit of national environmental authorities, government ministries including those for health, gender and labour, EA practitioners, research and academic institutions and civil society organizations in the region. It provides guidance for incorporating HIV, gender and health issues into the EA process. It also identifies the kinds of partnerships necessary to improve data gathering, planning and implementation of HIV and gender-related interventions that contribute to improving community health and reducing gender inequalities. The knowledge gained from using this publication is expected to inform EA policy reviews at country and regional levels enhance EA practice, promote partnerships and synergies among stakeholders, and strengthen monitoring and compliance processes associated with EAs.
