Introduction

The training examines gender influences in the participants’ own lives, cultural and societal expectations of men and women, how systems and institutions create and maintain gender roles and relationships, and how these factors affect the development process. Gender is a basic organizing principle of societies, particularly in the division of labor in families, communities, and the marketplace. Its purpose is to improve the knowledge, attitudes, and skills of development workers so as to create gender-responsive institutions, policies, programs, and projects.

The overall purpose of the training is to enhance the gender-responsive planning of key institutions and the management skills of their employees so that they can more effectively play their part in implementing gender-sensitive development policies as well as mainstreaming gender in order to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, SDG’s.
