Tool One; Job Description, provides sample criteria for Community Based Facilitators (CBFs) who will work with women, groups, and communities. It is important that these CBFs be selected carefully. This sample job description outlines the core duties of CBFs in order to hire the best candidates.
Tool Two, a two-part self assessment, should form the basis for training and supporting Community Based Facilitators (CBFs). It assesses each CBF's work experience, experience with the communities, and understanding of gender and social dynamics regarding land and resources in the community.
Tool Three, Sample Logic Framework, is linked to the Sample Baseline Survey and Assessment (Tool Four), and provides sample outcomes and indicators to measure women's land tenure security. The framework should be amended based on context and should be developed after initial qualitative research on land and resource security for women.
Tool Four, Sample Baseline Survey and Assessment, forms part of a robust Monitoring and Evaluation plan, and should be conducted with both project participants and a control group. Questions should be tailored to the particular project context.
Tool Five is a guide to conducting a needs assessment to form the basis for curriculum development and engagement. This example focuses on understanding the land and resource tenure situation and women’s experiences of tenure.
Community-based Facilitators (CBFs) should write a monthly report for each group. Tool Six - Monthly Reporting Format Template provides suggested items for inclusion in this report.
Tool Seven is a template for group meeting minutes, which should be kept by the groups themselves where feasible and should be recorded by CBFs. This template also includes guidance for using journals for ongoing monitoring and evaluation.
Tool Eight - a template that includes suggestions for how to easily chart out a plan for implementation, including common methods for engagement. This implementation plan begins after the activities of identifying and hiring Community Based Facilitators, identifying project participants, and conducting the baseline and needs assessment.
Tool Nine -Action Points for Groups includes group work to identify problems and aspirations, ask for confirmation, amendment, or addition, and identify action points is next. Two samples of action points and a blank table are part of this tool.
