Joint Learning Journey on Gender Mainstreaming
The Centre and the Belgian Development Agency (BTC) are jointly organising a workshop on “Discovering a shared capacity for gender mainstreaming in development cooperation in the build-up to the post-2015 Agenda” in Brussels, on 31 March to 2 April. The activity is part of a longer “Joint learning journey” by the Learn4Dev Gender Experts’ Group.
Learn4Dev is the joint donors’ competence development network in which members offer each other support for better competence development by sharing resources and exchanging experiences.
The L4D Gender Expert Group was established in 2011 and has since pooled training and technical resources, analysed capacity gaps, built on experiences and developed common tools. This was done to ensure that development cooperation effectively contributes to the achievement of universally agreed gender equality goals. (http://www.learn4dev.net/expertise/gender/)
To succeed in these shared tasks, new ways of collaborative learning, exchanging experiences and harmonising approaches and tools have been created in the “Joint Learning Journey on Gender Mainstreaming in Development Cooperation”.
To share practical knowledge and explore the potential of gender-responsive budgeting (GRB) to contribute to the development effectiveness agenda, the meeting will rely on experts from Morocco and Rwanda, and on experts from the donor community.
