Control over and ownership of assets are a critical component for the well-being of individuals and households. A crucial first step toward understanding the gender dimensions of asset ownership and control is acquiring detailed gender-disaggregated information on assets though monitoring, evaluation, and data collection. As part of GAAP we have developed a toolkit intended to help researchers and practitioners collect, measure, and analyze gender and assets data in qualitative and quantitative evaluations for current and future projects.  The toolkit is a living document that was initially developed in February 2012 but was updated in September 2014 to include results from the 8 portfolio projects.
