Gender Mainstreaming

Are you a local government official? Do you want to develop gender equality in your municipality and contribute to gender-equal lives for all citizens?

This 18 months International Training Programme offers a training in how to gender mainstream local democracy. You will have the opportunity to work on a change process from your own local government, and get support and knowledge from experts, mentors and colleagues from other local governments.

The programme is based on Agenda 2030 and the 17 sustainable development goals. A special focus is placed on goal #5 – gender equality. Every local government participating in the programme is therefore expected to carry out a change process using the gender mainstreaming method.

The following countries are eligible for the programme: Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia.

The programme period: 2019-2021.

Participants should be governmental officials from local governments.

Application period to the next round of this programme is now closed.
