Gender, Inclusion, Power and Politics (GIPP) Analysis Toolkit

by Christian Aid and Social Development Direct

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

The tool is for use in the development and humanitarian sector to support the design and implementation 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.

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

This toolkit will be further refined in response and reflection through its application to ensure it can be most useful, locally owned and relevant.
