The course will introduce participants to a set of instruments to enhance mainstreaming of gender at policy, organizational and programme levels. Through this course, offered by a team of gender experts who have worked with various international development agencies such as DFID, EU, UN agencies, CIDA, Sida, amongst others, there will be an increased understanding of gender mainstreaming as a strategy to achieve gender equality and SDGs; an awareness of the challenges to gender mainstreaming and an effort to build competency to address the identified challenges; and strengthening of the capacity of participants to practically apply gender mainstreaming effectively in their organizations or institutions.
