Gender mainstreaming is an organizational strategy aimed at introducing a gender perspective into all aspects of an institution's policies and activities, through capacity building and gender accountability. Gender analysis, on the other hand, is the systematic collection and study of information about gender-related social differences and relationships in order to identify, understand and reduce gender-based inequalities.
