The gender equality policy for Iceland's development cooperation came into effect in March 2013, to provide guidance in Iceland's development cooperation. In line with the Policy, efforts are made to promote gender equality and empower women in Iceland's development co-operation through gender mainstreaming and through specific measures. According to the Policy, gender mainstreaming shall be a key focus in all official development assistance. Gender equality is considered a cross-cutting theme which means that all development projects and cooperation ventures shall be analysed with regard to gender equality.
The Ministry for Foreign Affairs Iceland, Directorate for International Development Cooperation, now seeks qualified consultants to conduct an evaluation of the effectiveness of the Gender Equality Policy in Iceland's International Development Co-operation 2013-2016 and efforts to promote and implement gender mainstreaming and gender specific activities in Iceland's development cooperation.
