DSG Toolkit: Digital Preparedness Checklist
This checklist is designed to help implementing organizations gauge their own preparedness to digitize savings groups and to do so in a gender-responsive manner. The checklist will help implementers understand what they need to do to take on the technology, identify required training and support and address gender considerations in digitization projects. These include strategies to advance gender equality in the context of digital savings groups projects, reduce gendered risks and barriers to digitization and address intended and unintended gender consequences of digitization.
This tool is intended for staff of organizations implementing digital savings group (DSG) projects, specifically program designers and managers; monitoring and evaluation (M&E) team; and gender specialist.
This tool is a part of the Digital Savings Group (DSG) Toolkit: Tools to Support Safe and Gender-responsive Digitization of Savings Groups. It can be used individually or as a complete set, depending upon the needs of the implementer.
The tool is accompanied by an introductory video, which provides guidance on how to use it.
