SDC Gender Policy

​​​​​​​​​​​​​ Gendernet Toolbox

Gender equality is embedded in Switzerland's national and international commitments. For SDC, promoting gender equality is key for achieving sustainable development, inclusive economic development and ending poverty. Supporting gender equitable development is both, a matter of women's human rights and an economic necessity.

Gender mainstreaming 

The SDC Gender Policy defines gender mainstreaming as the main instrument to implement the policy. Gender mainstreaming means that any proposed action is reviewed with respect to its implications for women and men. It aims at promoting gender equality in all different fields such as health, education, employment and income, to name some.


The gender mainstreaming approach is threefold and integrates gender as a cross-cutting theme into all SDC projects and programme, supports targeted gender-specific interventions and takes measures in favour of institutional change. 



To facilitate capacity building and skills development in gender issues and gender mainstreaming, SDC provides a set of tools and instruments.
