FileSecond Arab Region ToT Workshop: Gender Mainstreaming in IWRM
The second Training of Trainers workshop on Gender and IWRM in the Arabic language was organised in Jordan from 1-7 November 2008. It was organised in partnership with Cap-net and AWARENET, and hosted by the Queen Zein al Sharaf Institute for Development (ZENID) in Amman, Jordan. The 16 participants came from Jordan, Lebanon, Palestinian Territories, Egypt, Sudan and Yemen. Lessons learned from GWA’s first Arab Region TOT held in Tunis (Nov. 07) were applied in this workshop. More time was devoted for understanding of the gender concept, gender responsive budgeting, gender and sanitation, and linking these issues to the reality of the region. In addition specific attention was paid to practical exercises and tailor made training methods to provide the participants with the skills and tools to train others in gender mainstreaming in their countries’ water sector. The report describes the course programme from session to session; the animated discussions on gender perceptions; and explains through text and photographs the course methodology like the meta-plan technique, ranking exercises, role play on preparing a training course budget, and more.
