2: Objectives

The overall objective of the MGLSD’s training programmes is to enhance the institutional gender-responsive planning and management skills necessary for supporting the effective implementation of government development policies.

The specific objectives of the national-level gender training workshops are:

To increase awareness of senior officials in line ministries of the importance of gender issues in achieving government development objectives.

To enhance the partnership between the MGLSD and other ministries in order to facilitate the development and implementation of gender-responsive policies and programmes.

To provide an opportunity for developing a common language and perspective for defining and fostering gender-focused development approaches.

To strengthen the gender sensitivity of senior civil servants so that they can oversee the integration of gender-sensitive policies and programmes in their ministries.
