Gender in Management CARRYING OUT GENDER NEEDS ANALYSIS USING GENAM TOOL (Strategic and Practical Needs) on a proposal for a fuel ethanol plant) A proposal for a fuel ethanol plant has been submitted by the Energy section of the Ministry of Water Resources and Energy to a bilateral donor. Your government strongly believes in participatory human-centred development. That is, development which enlarges peoples choices, expanding human functioning and capabilities leading to: Long and healthy life Knowledgeable population Equal access to resources and employment for a decent standard of living Informed choices Guaranteed human rights Etc. In addition your government is committed to implement the Millennium Development Goals. In the process of reviewing this proposal, it has been passed to key service and production Ministries for review of the project’s viability and its impact on the community’s development prospects. The officers in the said ministries have reviewed the project, and sent it back to you as the investor, to identify the unmet gender needs of the would be workers in the factory as well as the citizens in the project area. The officers demand that you show in the project write-up how you will mainstream the gender issues, which they know exists; so as alleviate poverty in the area, protect the environment and ensure gender equity and equality. Details of the proposal are given first, followed by some suggestions about how you could go about this task. Details of project proposed The proposal is for a 120,000 Litre\day fuel ethanol distillery operating all year round (except for two week maintenance shutdown). The feedstock is to be sugar cane juice plus molasses (from an existing estate's own production) and cassava, which is grown by small holders in the area, both as security against drought and as a cash crop (about 500 ha of land currently under cassava production). The estate, which is 13,500 ha. will turn over 1,400 ha. to cassava also. An Agricultural Research centre situated some 200km away is to provide high yielding planting materials of cassava suitable for this area in terms of climatically conditions.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
