This report presents the findings of the second phase of a larger assignment to address gender issues related to design and implementation of the United States Agency for International Development/East Africa (USAID/EA) Regional Economic Growth and Integration (REGI) program. The effort was supported by a task order issued by the USAID/Office of Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment (GenDev) and USAID/EA through DevTech Systems, Inc. (DevTech).

The first phase of work consisted of a desk study that provided an overview of gender issues related to agriculture and climate change. The second phase involved interviewing stakeholders in East Africa, identifying the capabilities of potential partners, and considering possible programming options as USAID/EA in light of the new strategic directions being developed by USAID/EA.
