As a starting point for gender mainstreaming, gender analysis identifies the differences between and among women and men in terms of their relative position in society and the distribution of resources, opportunities, constraints and power in a given context.In this way, conducting a gender analysis allows for the development of interventions that address gender inequalities and meet the different needs of women and men.
Public financial management
In many public institutions, managers face the problem of having the issues related to budget preparation and execution; accounting; financial reporting and trends towards results-based performance measurement; integrated financial management information systems (IFMIS) and auditing. In general, Countries are better at preparing budgets than executing them. Internal audit, management of fiscal risks, external audit, and scrutiny by Supreme Audit Institutions and the legislature are the weakest areas of PFM.
Since the late 1990s, DFID and other donors have devoted an unprecedented level of attention to the reform of PFM systems in developing and transition countries. Yet, the results have been mixed. With some exceptions, reform progress has been slow and the benefits elusive. Nevertheless, some countries have been more successful in implementing PFM reforms than others.In recent years, the government of Rwanda has made impressive progress in reforming and building its public financial management system. The reforms progress took a significant step forward with the promulgation of the organic law No 37/2006 on State Finances and Property (OBL) in September 2006 to create the necessary legal framework for the management of the financial resources and other properties in the public sector. This law emphasizes the government policy of transferring power and responsibility closer to the people through decentralization of decisions on fiscal and financial management, and resources accounting.

performance measurement is brought together with the strategic planning and budgeting
processes of an organization to support the alignment between its overall goals and the

based management is defined as management strategy focusing on performance and
achievement of outputs, outcomes, and impacts.

and implementation of Governments' economic and social policies. The mandate of
labour administration and inspection should be regulated in the same manner to
all workers and in all workplaces in all sectors.

Logistics is the management of the flow of goods between the point of origin and the point of consumption in order to meet some requirements, for example, of customers or corporations. The resources managed in logistics can include physical items, such as food, materials, animals, equipment and liquids, as well as abstract items, such as time, information, particles, and energy.
The logistics of physical items usually involves the integration of information flow, material handling, production, packaging, inventory, transportation, warehousing, and often security.
According to the Council of Logistics Management, logistics includes the integrated planning, control, realization, and monitoring of all internal and network-wide material, part, and product flow, including the necessary information flow, industrial and trading companies along the complete value-added chain (and product life cycle) for the purpose of conforming to customer requirements.
Logistics is the process of planning, implementing, and controlling the effective and efficient flow of goods and services from the point of origin to the point of consumption.
