Stocktake of the use of household methodologies in IFAD’s portfolio
June 2019

This report presents the findings from a desk-based review of household methodologies (HHM) activities and results in the IFAD loan portfolio and a consultation with individuals with first-hand experience of HHM.

Household methodologies are innovative approaches used to promote gender equality and livelihoods development. IFAD is one of the leading development organizations innovating with HHM as a key strategy to advance its gender and broader development agenda.

Currently, there are over 50 IFAD projects across the five regions that make provision for the use of HMM. This considerable body of experience represents a good opportunity for IFAD to take stock of what has been done so far.
