The aim of the training was to develop the capacity of 30 UN field staff in post-conflict countries to integrate gender, peace and conflict analysis into the peacebuilding programming cycle. The training focussed on operationalising the UN Secretary General's Seven-Point Action Plan (7PAP) on gender-responsive peacebuilding, which addresses essential processes for: gender-responsive peacebuilding (post-conflict planning and finance), gender-responsive human resources (civilian capacity and conflict resolution) and thematic programmes on women's representation in post-conflict governance, rule of law and economic recovery.
The training was delivered by our Senior Peacebuilding Training Officer, Hawah Bunduka and our Senior Research Officer - Gender in Peacebuilding, Henri Myrttinen.
We have drafted a toolkit on gender-responsive peacebuilding based on this training. UN Women and PBSO will now adapt this toolkit based on further input from UN staff involved in gender-responsive peacebuilding programmes and those involved in training on gender-responsive peacebuilding.
