Gender mainstreaming training in Suriname
The training started with a definition of what gender mainstreaming is, and why it is important to create a gender balance in conservation programs. The practical session of this training was the use of the gender analysis matrix. This matrix is set up to incorporate gender issues into the design of a program or project. Thus, the 20 participants got a first-hand experience of how to strategize the thought process around gender mainstreaming in program development.
