"Making Governance Gender Responsive (MGGR)" is a generic course that can be adapted and modified to suit the needs of the different countries in Asia-Pacific. The initial training module was developed by the Center for Asia-Pacific Women in Politics (CAPWIP), with funding support from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) through its Asia-Pacific Gender Equality Network (UNDP-APGEN) and the Regional Governance Programme for Asia and the Pacific (UNDP-PARAGON).
The training is intended for men and women involved in:
Specifically, after the training program, the participants are expected to:
Content-wise, the course starts with the conceptual definition of gender and governance. The training module will also have inputs on key aspects of governance (domains and exercise of authority) as well as the attributes of gender-responsive governance. The course also introduces the tools for identifying and analyzing the gender biases in governance.
Inputs on different strategies undertaken by different organizations to address gender biases in governance shall also be presented to inspire the participants to use these as bases in generating possible lessons and insights as they will reflect on their own situations and develop specific actions. Facilitators will accompany the participants throughout the training to ensure that the theories are discussed as well as their application. Resource persons from government agencies and institutions actively practicing gender mainstreaming programs will also be invited to share their experiences through the presentation of case studies and will dialogue with the participants.
It is participatory!!!! Process-wise, the module offers a variety of training methodologies to attain the program's learning objectives. Different approaches are employed to ensure that opportunities for maximum learning take place. Specifically, this means that a combination of experiential, reflective, participative and deductive approaches congruent with adult learning principles and conditions shall be undertaken. Aside from lectures, the module will have workshops, structured learning exercises, case presentations, individual reflections and panel discussions to stimulate active exchange of views and sharing of experiences among and between the participants and the facilitators/resource persons.
More than the inputs of the resource persons and the trainers, the success of this training is dependent on the quality of discussion among the participants. Hence, the participants are encouraged to actively participate and share their ideas.
