The W+ Standard establishes the “normative” requirements for implementing a W+ Project. The W+ Program, Standard and the six W+ Domains and criteria have been developed through a consultative process with stakeholders. This included women’s groups and men within community development projects in Asia and Africa, as well as subject matter specialists in gender/women’s empowerment ,carbon project development and certification systems.
The W+ Program Guide presents information intended to guide and support Project Developers in meeting the requirements for submitting required PIN, PDD, Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting, and Validation/Verification documentation to WOCAN for W + project certification.
This tool is to be used in conjunction with every W+ method as the transfer of financial resources to primary beneficiaries is a mandatory design element of the W+ Standard (here also referred to as the “Direct Share”)
This template is for the development of W+ projects. The key elements of the W+ PIN are: W+ Standard Project Identification, Applicant Details, Location of W+ Project, General W+ Project Information and W+ Project Organization.
Instructions for completing the project description template are given under the section headings in this template. This template must be completed in accordance with the W+ Standard, Program Guide, and any other relevant guidance documents, and the preparer will need to refer to these program documents in order to complete the template.
