Gender equality and empowerment is considered a critical element for development. This course is designed to prepare participants for a variety of careers where specialized knowledge is required related to the integration of gender considerations into policy making, project design and implementation, monitoring and evaluation. Gender mainstreaming is an international strategy to achieve gender equality in all aspects of society. Many governments in developing and developed countries have endeavored to implement this strategy. This course aims to provide participants with a comprehensive knowledge of gender mainstreaming and gender analysis. It draws on best practice and case studies from around the world. As well, it provides the opportunity to focus on a specific policy area (such as public health, education, economic management, or human resources) or for participants to employ this knowledge in their own workplace through an action research topic.

By the end of the course, the participant should be able to;
• · Have explored the intrinsic relationship between gender and development
• · Be able to integrate gender into contextual analysis, and to use gender analysis frameworks effectively
• · Be better equipped to integrate gender into strategic and operational planning
• · Have acquired methods of creating gender awareness within development practice
