WI-HER developed an innovative results-oriented methodology called iDARE (Identify, Design, Apply/Assess, Record, Expand), which emphasizes close partnerships with stakeholders, Continuous Learning and Adaptation (CLA), cost effectiveness, and clear sustainability metrics that enable self-reliance. WI-HER’s iDARE methodology ensures solutions are country owned, sustainably delivered, responsibly managed, and properly documented. It is applied to address development gaps, including gender and social inclusion gaps, and it exceeds USAID’s Gender Equality and Female Empowerment Policy requirements. iDARE has been implemented in 35 countries world wide and now adopted and independently applied by local professionals.
