This evidence brief summarises the outcomes from RIPA-North’s ‘Gender Outcome Mapping' Study, conducted in February 2023, which aimed to assess how communities themselves measure their progress towards gender equality. 

The findings indicate very positive signs of progress, with almost 75 per cent of women reporting 'high' or 'medium' levels of change for all eight main categories of gender norm that pose a challenge for women's participation and gender equity. 

Recommendations focus on deepening impacts, addressing unequal care burdens, enhancing women's public decision-making roles, and promoting advocacy for equality. This insight is crucial for reinforcing gender equality and empowering women in pastoral areas, highlighting the programme's role in fostering inclusive economic growth and resilience.
