Capacity Development & Training Programme in Gender Mainstreaming
Gender-training is one of the key methods to support behaviour and organizational change. Providing training is however, on its own not sufficient. Training is helpful if lessons are drawn from the experience, used to improve our future work and shared with others. This also applies to those organizing gender-training.
