Gender is an important cross cutting issue in Norwegian development assistance in general and, due to the special conditions, in Afghnaistan in particular. Gender considerations are part of most of the development projects, but vary in terms of specificity from agreement to agreement, and between  the different channels of funding.

This review is intended to systematically collect information about the gender work of Norwegian supported NGOs and to compare them and, to the extent possible for a desk-review, assess their relevance,sustainability and results. The main intension is to produce experience based information as basis for future work of NGOs in particular and for other sectors in general, in silimar cultural, religious and socio-economic settings.
