MGGR October 18-23

Greeting from the Center For Asia Pacific Women in Politics (CAPWIP) The Center for Asia Pacific Women in Politics (CAPWIP) would like to invite your organization to a training on "Making Governance Gender Responsive (MGGR)" October 17-23, 2004 in Manila, Philippines. This training course was developed by the Center for Asia Pacific Women in Politics (CAPWIP), with funding support from the Asia Pacific Gender Equality Network (UNDP-APGEN) and the PARAGON Regional Governance Programme for Asia (UNDP-PARAGON).

The course is designed for middle and senior level government executives, women and men in local governments, political parties, research and training institutes and civil society organizations who are leading or participating in governance reform initiatives in their respective countries. Specifically, it intends to help participants to:

  1. Gain theoretical and practical understanding and appreciation of the Gender and Development (GAD) and governance concepts and their inter-relationship;
  2. Acquire skills in identifying and analyzing gender-related issues and biases in governance; and
  3. Formulate a doable action plan to address these gender biases and concerns. > It is composed of three (3) modules developed to enhance participants' understanding of the link between gender and governance as well as increase their awareness of gender biases in governance. The training is being offered and designed for a small group of about 25 to 30 participants only.

The first and second batches of the MGGR training were successfully held last February and June 2004 at the newly-built CAPWIP Institute for Gender-Responsive Governance and Leadership (CIGGL) located at Hostelling International Manila (HI Manila) at 4229 Tomas Claudio Street, Baclaran, Parañaque City, Philippines. This was attended by participants from different countries in the Asia Pacific region.

The third batch of the 2004 MGGR trainings is scheduled on October 18-23, 2004> The third batch was redesigned based on the feed back from the first two successful trainings. The third batch has been expanded to a six day course ( originally designed as a three day course), and the course is now heavier on field visits. The registration fee for the six day training is US775 based on twin sharing accomodations and US 600 for triple sharing accomodations ( meals and training kit included) We are sending you the detailed information sheet and the registration form as attachments to this email.

We hope that your organization can send participants to this training. Let us join hands in promoting gender responsive governance through transformative leadership and citizenship. We look forward to your participation.

Thank you.

Sincerely yours,
