Gender Mainstreaming in Infrastructure

This capacity-building module will provide you with the knowledge and skills required to define strategies oriented towards integrating a gender perspective when developing infrastructure projects, thus ensuring the projects and services they provide promote positive and equitable benefits for all.

Our gender mainstreaming training course reviews the current role of women in infrastructure and reflects on why, in opposition to the common belief, infrastructure is not gender-neutral. The course explores the crucial role gender plays in achieving global commitments such as the Sustainable Development Goals and what are the main barriers and challenges to gender integration across the infrastructure project lifecycle. Additionally, this course will examine worldwide best practices, providing recommendations for gender mainstreaming and helping you set up strategies to be incorporated within your institution or projects.
