In response to requests from program implementers, CARE USA applied the TOPS funding to finalize a set of standardized, but context-specific, gender monitoring indicators (or Progress Markers) and formats for tracking intra-household and social norm changes (including men’s engagement) and to broadly disseminate CARE USA’s innovative monitoring and evaluation processes for gender-transformative food security programming. The small grant covered two activities to support these goals: a gender indicator design workshop, held in Lilongwe, Malawi, to develop the preliminary set of Progress Markers for 5 countries and a dissemination meeting organized in Washington, DC, to share CARE USA’s tools and processes with the food security community. The process was recognized by USAID’s Collaborating, Learning, and Adapting (CLA) 2015 case study competition.
