This paper provides an overview and an analysis of joint gender programmes funded through the MDG-F Gender Equality window that are linked to the achievement of MDG3: Gender Equality and Empowerment of Women.

The primary purpose of this review is to examine the design and implementation approaches taken by the 13 joint programmes,  understand the challenges that arose during different programme stages, summarize the added value that gender specific programmes bring to the MDG achievement effort at the national level, and make recommendations that can guide funders and implementing partners of joint gender programmes.
