A development agenda2016, 103 pages

This paper from the Williams Institute sets out the theoretical framework for formulating an international development agenda for sexual and gender minorities. 

According to this paper, issues of sexual orientation and gender identity have advanced much more rapidly in the human rights arena than in the human development arena.  This paper compares the two frameworks, sets out a pathway to formulate development priorities for sexual and gender minorities, and reviews the role of sexual and gender minorities in relation to economic growth.  Relying heavily on empirical research of sexual and gender minorities, the paper reviews the unique development needs of sexual and gender minorities, and identifies legal and cultural barriers to full human development.  Additionally, various methods of defining “sexual and gender minority” are provided for the purposes of choosing target populations for development programs.

The paper incorporates the capabilities approach to determine development priorities. Capabilities are sets of options and freedoms that each person should have in order to experience well-being and live a full and satisfying life. The analysis proposes a sexual and gender minority development agenda based on the set of capabilities identified by local communities. The paper gives examples of several important capabilities from a development perspective.

The paper gives examples of several important capabilities from a development perspective:

• Live a healthy life

• Learn and receive an education

• Determine and express one’s own identity.

• Affiliate and relate to others

• Have adequate resources for living

• Participate in governance

The paper also evaluates the level of empirical data about sexual and gender minority populations currently available and suggests potential priorities.

This report from 2010 gives a specific overview of all the countries who receive grants in the LGTI area. The report also includes recommendations on how to engage in the grantmaking that advances rights and respect agencies (page 19). At the end of the report there are two interviews with the organization trustAfrica and the Brazilian human rights fund "Fundo Brazil de direitos humanos".

In 2010, 64 grantmakers from 22 countries reported awarding 713 grants to LGTBI organizations and projects in the global South and East (GSE) and organizations in the Global North working with international bodies and/or organizations in the GSE. These grants reached 94 countries. Altogether, these funders awarded US $35,784,703, including six grants totaling $1,517,000 to public foundations and other intermediary organizations for regranting. In the top 10 list of funders in dollars is Sida and the Norwegian Foreign Affairs Office. North America and Western Europe provided 93.5 percent of all grant dollars for LGBTI efforts in the Global South and East and work with international bodies – similar to 2007 grantmaking numbers. That said, there have been increases in LGBTI grant dollars from other regions.

Homosexuality and faith-based development in Zimbabwe - (Accessible only by payment).

This article (2011) reviews some of the main arguments advanced by scholars operating at the interface of religion and development. It then seeks to expand the current literature on religion and development to include more ‘uncomfortable’ subject matter, such as homosexuality and discrimination.

Using the 1995 Zimbabwe Book Fair as a case study, the author argues that international religious NGOs engaged in evangelical activity must show greater attention to the contexts in which they operate. In particular, they must take an explicit stand against homophobia and discrimination. Otherwise, their development interventions risk strengthening and legitimating cultures of exclusion in countries like Zimbabwe.

A detailed description (2007) of sexual rights and gender issues in development work and how new thinking on sexual rights emerged within the frame of the Vienna, Cairo and Beijing agreements.

While not focusing much on LGBT issues, the report gives useful general recommendations on how international institutions, governments, NGOs, development agencies, the women’s movement, human rights activists and others can play a vital role in contributing to greater well-being by supporting sexual rights. For example by recognising sexuality as more than a health and violence issue, and to identify the interconnections between well-being and ill-being, wealth and poverty, integration and marginalisation, and the significance of sexuality in political struggles.
