Namibia updated its gender policy soon after the adoption of the SADC Gender Protocol and came up with eight priority areas. Namibia embarked on extensive baseline research with all line ministries, and with the support of the Spanish government MDG 3 Fund. This prepared the way for two capacity building, strategy and planning workshops, that yielded a comprehensive costed action plan. Namibia has strengthened its national gender machinery through the process. The gender ministry is now part of the panel constituted by the Ministry of Finance to review every budget vote. Namibia has formed strong theme clusters, especially around GBV.
