How can policies and programmes be inclusive and more specifically, gender sensitive? How do values of inclusiveness and gender equality result in better performance and greater benefits for your organization or community? This course, organised by The Hague Academy for Local Governance, discusses gender-sensitive strategies as well as tools for gender analysis, gender-sensitive monitoring and evaluation, mainstreaming gender and gender-responsive service delivery at the local level.
Special attention is given to designing strategies for an effective and meaningful involvement of marginalized groups (i.e. women, youth) in development initiatives. The course will also underline how best to engage men and discuss cross-cutting issues of applying a diverse gender perspective (intersectionality), especially in complex cultural and religious settings.
Practical examples from around the globe, the application of interactive ways of sharing knowledge and work with renowned experts in this field will give participants a deeper understanding of gender dynamics and strategies for addressing the different needs and priorities of women, men, young girls and boys.
Key concepts of this course will include gender analysis, gender mainstreaming, gender-sensitive monitoring and evaluation, responsive and equitable service delivery, social economic empowerment, meaningful participation, transformative change, and more effective communication.
This course will take place in The Hague from 19 to 30 November 2018.
