Executive Summary
The overall objective of the SEAGA programme is to strengthen socio-economic and gender analysis capabilities at regional, national and locallevels. Three manuals that present tools and methodologies for conductinganalysis at the macro, intermediate and field levels underpin the programme.In addition, there are several specialist technical guides that demonstrate theapplication of SEAGA principles to specific aspects of natural resourcemanagement; this manual forms part of the technical guide series.The purpose of this manual is to create a new synergy by bringing togetherproject management practices and socio-economic and gender issues withinthe conceptual framework of SEAGA. This is achieved by drawing on othertheoretical perspectives and methods including project cycle management,the logical framework, rapid appraisal techniques, participatory approaches,and gender analysis and stakeholder identification.The manual is principally written for practitioners at the operational level ingovernment, Non Governmental Organisations, Civil Society Organisations andthe private sector. It will also be of interest to people working at policy leveland academicians.Following an overview of the project cycle presented in Section 2, thestructure for the manual is based on key stages in the project cycle: projectidentification (Section 3), project design (Section 4), project appraisal (Section5), proposal preparation (Section 6), and monitoring and evaluation (Section7). In each section, various concepts and techniques are discussed prior todemonstrating their practical application with examples. The latter are basedon three case studies developed from field experience in eastern Africa:fishing communities on Lake Victoria, rural road rehabilitation, and adultliteracy projects.I would like to extend my thanks to the communities who participated in thefieldwork and to my fieldwork colleagues: Nite Baza Tanzarn and Mrs ForoughOlinga, both from the Department of Women and Gender Studies, MakerereUniversity, Kampala; and Stellah Tumwebaze and Simon Kisira, both fromLABE (a Non Governmental Organisation specialising in adult literacy andeducation based in Kampala).
