Land O’Lakes led an initiative to update and expand its internal Integrating Gender throughout a Project’s Life Cycle toolkit. This initiative started pre-small grant, when Land O’Lakes received TOPS support to host a webinar to launch the first edition to and solicit feedback from the food security community. Land O’Lakes used this feedback to revise the toolkit.

Integrating Gender throughout a Project’s Life Cycle 2.0 was developed for use by staff of food security, nutrition, and agriculture development programs and addresses the entire life cycle of a program. A hands on guide, the revised toolkit gives organizations the first steps to integrate gender into their internal policies and practices and to maximize program impact in a way that exceeds donor requirements around gender. Since its completion, the toolkit has been promoted to field staff in Tanzania during a launch and training, to Washington, DC-based practitioners during a launch and networking event, and in online forums reaching a global audience. 

Land O’Lakes partnered with five other organizations to create the second edition of the toolkit: Cultural Practice, Development & Training Services, Inc.; Partnership for Transparency Fund; Project Concern International; Save the Children US; and TechnoServe. This joint effort created a more comprehensive tool that showcases promising practices and successes from a variety of perspectives.
