This course explores the what, why and how of gender responsive governance for transformative change by focusing on gender mainstreaming and equitable service delivery at the local level.

This course explores the what, why and how of gender responsive governance and its relation to inclusive development. The practical integration of gender in all dimensions of (local) governance, as well as the role of women and men in equitable service delivery are examined. Special attention is paid to designing strategies for effective and meaningful involvement of marginalized groups (i.e. women, youth) in development initiatives. Throughout, the cross-cutting issues of applying intersectionality and how to involve men are underlined, especially in complex cultural and religious settings.

By showing examples from around the globe, applying interactive ways of sharing knowledge and working with renowned experts in this field, participants will gain a deeper understanding of gender dynamics and strategies for addressing the different needs and priorities of women, men, young girls and boys.

Key concepts: gender analysis, gender mainstreaming, gender budgeting, equitable service delivery, social economic empowerment, meaningful participation, transformative change, working with gender in complex settings, effective communication.
