ICLD

International training programmes

The overall goal of ICLD’s training programmes is to combat poverty in all its forms.  

ICLD’s training programmes are aimed at decision-makers and administrative officials in developing countries, whether they work in the public sector, trade and industry, or voluntary organisations. The opportunity for the participants to learn from Swedish cutting edge skills, experience and methodologies in the field of local democracy development is what lies at the heart of the training programmes. There is, however, another goal, namely the creation of long-term networks and partnerships between developing countries and between the participants and Swedish stakeholders. 

There are seven different training programmes, all of which are provided free of charge, with participants’ travel costs and board and lodging also financed by ICLD.

Study says: Obstacles to reach gender equality


For the last seventeen years, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Montenegro and Serbia have been striving to institutionalize gender equity and equality.
This has been achieved by developing legal and policy frameworks, establishing institutional gender mainstreaming mechanisms and engendering national statistical institutions.
“Despite the advanced institutionalization of gender issues, the lives of women have not significantly improved during this period,” says professor Annika Björkdahl and Lejla Somun-Kruoalija, independent researcher, in a recently published study.
