The Review’s purpose is to assist the IPU in planning for the IPU Gender Programme and additionally to assess how the Organisation could mainstream Gender into its overall ‘programmes of work, its organisational structures and strategic direction’. The Gender Review has been compiled bearing in mind the IPU seeks to build longer-term relationships with donors, plus the Union is in process of seeking to realign itself closer to the UN family of organisations.
