This course seeks to enhance the knowledge and capacity of trainers / facilitators by providing training in the field of gender responsive budgeting (GRB) and on specific topics in this field. This face to face course aims to combine theory with hands-on training for GRB and to provide participants with the necessary skills and tools to develop an efficient capacity development strategy.
During one week, participants will undertake Training of Trainers (TOT) sessions, theoretical sessions, practical exercises, debates and participatory dynamics. In theoretical sessions on GRB, specific tools or methodologies will be presented, analyzed and discussed in depth. Specific country examples and practical hands-on-training exercises will be included in each session, allowing students to combine theory with practice. Guided by a participatory dynamic, the sessions on training needs will also be prepared and delivered by a trainer via a horizontal learning process wherein both trainers and trainees learn from one another. Finally, the course will include ToT sessions aimed to enhance training skills of participants in the subject of GRB. During the TOT sessions, each student is expected to present a GRB session to be developed in groups of 5 persons.
The course will be of particular benefit to:
- Development practitioners including United Nations System staff, researchers, policy-makers, civil society and advocates who are working on gender mainstreaming in different spheres such as public policy, planning and budgeting.
- Gender trainers and/or programme officers with a good level of knowledge on gender responsive budgeting.
