A Road Map for Measuring Development Impact: a Woman's and Family Perspective

Monique Cohen

Review of Social Economy, 1997, vol. 55, issue 2, 243-250

Abstract: This paper discusses women's strategies during the economic reforms with a focus on housing policies. It uses the housing issue to address the importance of identifying impacts on both women as individuals and as family members when evaluating development programs. A case study of a family in Cairo illustrates the issues involved. The paper then considers modifications for impact assessment of programs so that the concept of end user is broadened to include the woman and the family.
