Millions of children around the world do not have what they need to survive, learn and thrive because governments do not prioritise them, do not listen to them and are not held accountable when they fail them. Others are not equipped to give children what they need because they do not have the right data to properly plan or do not invest enough in children’s health, learning and protection.
Gender mainstreaming is an (international) strategy to achieve gender equality. It is shorthand for saying that the impact of all policies and programmes on women and men should be considered at every stage of the policy or programme cycle — from planning to implementation and evaluation. This advanced e-learning course aims to provide participants with comprehensive knowledge of gender mainstreaming and gender analysis. It draws on best practice and case studies from around the world.
In this e-learning course NGO staff members, human rights activists and development workers will be introduced to the fundamentals of planning and carrying out programme-based monitoring and evaluation. The course will blend planning and management principles with skill-development related to study design and data collection and analysis. Participants are encouraged to come to the course with a project for which they can develop a monitoring and evaluation plan.
This course is aimed at development practitioners working in the field of children’s rights who are planning or considering undertaking an analysis of the situation of children’s rights. The course will enable participants to understand the concepts and principles of human rights/children’s rights and their application in the production of an analysis of the degree to which children realise their rights and the factors and obstacles that prevent them.
