GEM for ICTs and internet initiatives is an online guide for conducting gender evaluations of initiatives that use ICT for social change. The guide provides users with an overview of the evaluation process (including links to general evaluation resources) and outlines suggested strategies and methodologies for incorporating a gender analysis throughout the evaluation process. GEM is not simply an evaluation tool. It can also be used to ensure that gender concerns are integrated into a project planning process.
THe online guide is available in English and Spanish.
In 2007, the APC WNSP began working on GEM adaptations for localization, rural development, national ICT policy advocacy and telecentre initiatives.
