Diakonia
Bangladesh: Fighting for gender equality
Description: For the last fifty years, since 1966 when Diakonia was established, our focus has been on people exposed to injustice. We have been working on finding opportunities and co-operations to change their situation. Bangladesh is one of the most populated countries in the world. The livelihood of the people has improved during the last years but the low-lying country is threatened by climate change and the sea level rise. In the third filmclip we meet Sultana Begum, who started to work for Diakonia 1980. A role model who worked for gender equality when nobody else did. Bo Forsberg, Secretary General, who followed her work says that her fight for the rights of women and girls has been invaluable. On our behalf Marika Griehsel, Simon Stanford and Anders Kronborg have produced four documentaries to describe our work, one from each region where we work.

Yes G CAN Endorsing Food Security Gender Responsive
Description: Extension professionals are fully committed to improving rural livelihoods and strengthening communities, but there is still a great need across the board to better integrate gender and nutrition into their services. Integrated development projects have become the norm, but the fact still remains that simple, evidence-based, ready-to-use materials are extremely difficult to access. Join our next Ag Sector Council event, where the Integrating Gender and Nutrition within Agricultural Extension Services (INGENAES) project is addressing this challenge and presenting concrete approaches that will enable participants to: • Identify gaps in existing services and develop ways to better integrate gender and nutrition • Identify how more strategic work in these areas will cause greater impact • Propose strategies to improve delivery of quality services • Develop mutually-beneficial partnerships • Enhance existing gender equity and improved nutrition contributions Experts will engage participants in the new Institutional Review and Planning Framework and training-of-trainers activities. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to share their experience with institutional capacity development and how they’ve been able to motivate change related to gender and nutrition.

Conflict and Constitutions: Ensuring Women's Rights

Women on April 12 to hear an international panel of judges, lawmakers and legal experts discuss practical approaches to writing post-conflict constitutions that enshrine gender equality.

After War, Gender Equality Needs Investment Too
Description: Countries emerging from violent conflict face critical decisions from the outset. The way public resources are managed and public goods and services distributed becomes crucial to sustaining peace. In the influx of aid and technical support, the particular needs of women and girls often are overlooked. Join the U.S. Institute of Peace on Monday, March 13, for a discussion with experts about ways to ensure equality in reconstruction budgets and public finance institutions. For more information about this event, visit: https://www.usip.org/events/after-war-gender-equality-needs-investment-too Financial management systems that oversee functions such as tax collection, budget tracking or building infrastructure often are established rapidly in countries recovering from violent conflict. But these structures often aren’t built with consideration for the specific needs of women and girls, such as women’s ability to own property when redrafting land reform or women’s mobility when addressing road construction. The result is a missed opportunity to address structural gender inequality from the start. Panelists will discuss how to better integrate gender analysis into public finance, and opportunities for women’s participation in economic structures. Join the conversation on Twitter #USIPGender.
