ACDI/VOCA's toolkit includes information on preparing a scope of work, conducting a desk review, and writing a work plan. The fieldwork section identifies different methodologies, including quantitative surveys, focus groups, informant interviews, and observation. It also provides guidelines for using an interpreter, note-taking and recording, and ethical considerations. The data analysis and findings section outlines how to analyze data and develop recommendations. The toolkit also includes a number of activities for collecting and analyzing data. These include gender communication profiles, daily activity clocks, value chain actor questionnaires, designing structured questionnaires, and links to additional tools. This toolkit will be useful for researchers at the beginning of their projects, who need guidance on project planning with gender in mind.
