About the Publication

This report presents findings from a pilot study using a qualitative Rapid Assessment tool designed to integrate household-level indicators of WEE into results measurement systems per the DCED guidelines. A Rapid Assessment is used to generate indications of results among a pre-selected population understood to have benefitted from the project, and can be useful at various stages to see what is working. The Sector Project on Innovative Approaches to Private Sector Development of Deutsche Gesellschaft für internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) commissioned the report on behalf of the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). It synthesizes findings from in-depth interviews conducted with women beneficiaries of projects in Egypt and Morocco, and provides a preliminary understanding of household-level results of BMZ-funded women’s economic empowerment activities. It provides insight into how and why they experienced changes within their households, as well as on unanticipated effects that can only be captured through qualitative research.
