Gender, Inclusion, Power & Politics (GIPP) Toolkit - Part One - Guide

Download the resource

Gender, Inclusion, Power and Politics (GIPP) is an analysis tool developed by Christian Aid and Social Development Direct, through the Evidence and Collaboration for Inclusive Development (ECID) programme, funded by UK Aid.

The tool is for use in the development and humanitarian sector to support the design of effective and relevant programmes by developing a detailed picture of the root causes of problems, the roles of different stakeholders, and the processes to achieve positive change.

While there are fundamental links between Gender, Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI) analysis, Power Analysis (PA) and Political Economy Analysis (PEA), they are typically conducted separately, and the potential complementarities are often missed.

GIPP brings these processes to together to ensure the social, physical, environmental and attitudinal barriers and enablers can be detailed and better understood and embed gender equality, inclusion and power analysis into locally driven political economy analysis.

Part 1 introduces the GIPP approach and provides a broad outline of what a complete GIPP analysis might look like during the design phase of a programme.

See part 2 which provides a complete toolkit with participatory approaches and tools to be used at appropriate points during programme design and implementation.
