Several of the interventions made by civil society have been taken on board in the draft PRSP.
However, the proposed budget for gender is not adequate particularly that gender is considered to be a cross-cutting issue.
Further suggestions of immediate strategies have also be made as follows:
- Appropriate legal reforms are necessary in order to effectively deal with bad cultural practices and customs that
- Gender focal persons should be appointed at district level to enhance the process of gender mainstreaming.
- A specific line ministry should be identified to exclusively implement the National Gender Policy as well as the resultant Action Plan.
