This course aims to enable its participants with cutting-edge hands-on analytical tools of gender analysis in the context of development. The course takes an approach that is critical, hands-on, and inclusive. By offering a range of key gender themes, analytical tools, as well as thought-provoking thematic and regional case studies from different cultural contexts, the course engages the participants in thinking gender critically in the development projects, programs, and organisations. Upon completion of this course, the participants will have a strong understanding of the concepts and approaches of gender analysis at the project and program levels; will be able to demonstrate a critical appreciation of the gender issues by describing and evaluating data from a gender perspective; and will have the skills to identify the gender concerns and gaps within development projects and programs.
