"Gender Mainstreaming in Daily Practice"

Do you recognise this in your work??

  • "You are conscious of the need to pay more attention to Gender issues but you are not sure where to start. Though you are willing to make changes, it is not obvious what you should do that makes a difference. It is not your task to become a specialist, yet you need to ensure gender equity in your work. You are seeking for background knowledge on the gender discussion and practical tools and tips to contribute to Gender mainstreaming in your daily work."
  • If you recognise this, we warmly invite you to our Gender course in Laos on November 4-8. After this course, you will be able to use participative tools to predict the different impact of a given development initiative on both men and women and identify constraints to be addressed for maximum and equitable impact.

FAQs
What can the platform offer to business people?

The platform offers many opportunities to access new research information directly from universities, institutes and practitioners, and to feed into the agenda for new research to be undertaken. Platform events will offer networking opportunities and the chance to share with others successful strategies and lessons learned in business sectors such as agriculture, transport, and construction.

I work for a non-profit organization in the field of development. What can the platform offer people at the grassroots?

The platform is a ‘space’ to enable professionals working in areas relating to climate adaptation to share their knowledge and experience with each other. If you are working with poor communities where farmers are dealing with changed planting seasons or new pest infestations, where urban shanty-dwellers are finding that ‘climate migrants’ are crowding out already overstretched services, or where more village children are coming down with dengue fever – then the platform may indeed have something to offer you. It is all about linking up with others who are facing similar challenges, and figuring out what responses will work best in your particular situation.
