The Gender Inclusion Guidelines (GIG) offers guidance on how to integrate gender-responsive approaches into Fora Strategic and Work Plans, Annual Reports and Projects. It complements the principles outlined in the 1999 Framework for the Integration of Women in APEC.

The GIG is intended as a useful resource for APEC Fora, Committees and Overseers of APEC Projects to assist them to take action on the gender inclusion commitment of Economic Leaders and Ministers and strengthen the integration of gender into work across APEC’s broad agenda. It does not introduce any new mandatory requirements on APEC members and aims to reinforce existing accountability mechanisms.
