There is much debate within the international development community on the effectiveness of mainstreaming as a strategy for promoting gender equality. Although much has been learned about what is required for mainstreaming to be effective, our understanding of how to achieve it, explain it and measure it is still evolving. Gender mainstreaming, therefore, remains an unfinished project. The framework described has been designed to help enable CIDA to achieve development results for gender equality. The use of this framework allows us to measure to what extent current mainstreaming efforts at CIDA are leading to real results on gender equality. We hope it will be of use to partners seeking to make change happen within their own institutions. The full text of the framework is available at: (2006) 49, 104–107. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1100234
