As part of the ARTF year III monitoring program, the World Bank has tasked Management Systems International (MSI) with collecting environmental, social safeguard and gender field data for various sub-projects. While performing this task, field engineers typically identify data sources such as beneficiaries, Community Development Council (CDCs) and ministry representatives to ask a pre-selected set of questions.
Questions pertaining to the local environment and local community beneficiaries (male) are aimed at understanding if/how World Bank Environmental and Social Safeguard (ESS) guidelines have been followed during both the planning and implementation phases of sub-projects.
While the male engineers may collect the data from male community members, female perspectives are missed in this approach due to cultural issues, and it has been difficult for the male engineers to speak with female members of the community, in order to understand their perspectives on female participation in project planning and execution.
The female enumerators will fill this gap by collecting gender-segregated data in all over 34 provinces. They are going to coduct focus group discussions and key informant interview with female members of the Community Development Concil (CDC) and community members regarding female participation in election process, CDCs meeting, Community Development Plan (CDP), sub-committees and social exercises.
