Abstract

Since the turn of the century, a shift has taken place from project to more programme-oriented development assistance to low-income, aid-dependent countries. A sweeping reform agenda, outlined most clearly in the 2005 Paris Declaration and the 2008 Accra Agenda for Action, is today imposed upon donors and recipients alike. This article reviews ongoing changes through a gender lens. It provides an overview of opportunities for and challenges to gender equality in the context of a changing aid architecture, and it discusses the extent to which those opportunities and challenges have been acted upon by recipients and donors. Finally, it proposes ways of increasing gender sensitivity, drawing on examples from the case of Mozambique.Depuis le tournant du siècle, l’aide aux pays à faibles revenus, dépendant de l’aide a évoluée d’une aide-projet vers une aide-programme. L’imposant agenda des réformes, décrit clairement dans la déclaration de Paris de 2005 et dans l’agenda pour l’action d’Accra de 2008, s’impose désormais aussi bien aux donateurs qu’aux récipiendaires. Cet article examine les changements en cours du point de vue de la problématique du genre. Il fournit une vue d’ensemble des opportunités et des défis concernant l’égalité des genres dans le contexte de l’évolution de l’architecture de l’aide. Il cherche également à voir dans quelle mesure les donateurs et récipiendaires ont pris en compte ces opportunités et défis. Finalement, il propose d’améliorer la perception des questions de genre en s’appuyant sur le cas du Mozambique.
