The Measuring Opportunities for Women In Peace Operations (MOWIP) Toolbox provides all data collection tools, templates and explainers necessary for conducting a MOWIP assessment, using the MOWIP Methodology. All data collection tools, templates, and explainers referred to in the MOWIP Methodology are downloadable on this webpage.

Note that the data collection tools, templates, and explainers are living documents that the team may update, when necessary. Therefore, they may slightly differ from the examples presented in the  MOWIP Methodology.

The updated version of the toolbox is currently available in all three languages: English (EN), French (FR) and Spanish (SP). For any question relating to the toolbox, please contact the DCAF Elsie Helpdesk via

Before using the data collection tools, templates, and explanations, it will be helpful to consider the lessons learned from practitioners and researchers who have already conducted a MOWIP assessment. These can be found here in our publication: Implementing a MOWIP Assessment: Practitioner's Insights (EN – FR - SP)
