PROJECT: Latin America and the Caribbean gender training and annual country programme update

Project Reference: AALA-0014

Gender Training

CDKN has decided that mainstreaming gender in the alliance’s project portfolio is a priority. To do so, it is necessary for all the regions to have a better understanding of what this involves, starting by setting shared objectives that feed into the network’s theories towards sustained change.

For this reason, the Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) team found it necessary to develop a workshop where the team could develop specific objectives and indicators that take into consideration the region’s unique challenges.

Country Programme Update

Given that the team is already getting together for the Gender Training, it was decided to make the most of the opportunity by also dedicating time to updating each of the country programmes.
