Gender training materials produced in the South
BRIDGE, an information service on gender and development, is currently
looking for gender training materials in order to compile an annotated
bibliography of sources that are produced and used by Southern organi-
sations. The focus is on Africa (primarily francophone but also anglo-
phone) and Latin America. The aim is to produce a source guide for or-
ganisations that work in development co-operation as well as gender
NGOs, once the bibliography is completed. We assume that there are many
practitioners with vast experience 'out there' and would be grateful,
if you could help us with sourcing any of the following:
1) Training sources for trainers 'in the field' that cover gender
awareness and dynamics in general or within specific contexts in prac-
tice (e.g. rural and urban development, health and gender violence, en-
vironment and others);
2) Training materials to alert project and programme managers as well
as decision makers to gender issues in analysis and planning (including
the use of instruments such as PRA, logical frameworks, project cycle
management, monitoring and evaluation tools etc). This probably relates
more to donor organisations;
3) Key contacts, either regional or in relation to specific topics.
This can be individuals, organisations, e-mail lists, Internet data
bases or key sites that provide materials and/or further contacts.
If your organisation has produced a gender training manual, we would
really be interested to take it up in the bibliography. As there is a
very limited time-frame, we depend on a brief summary which states the
1) What are the main focus and aims of the gender training? What prac-
titioners are being addressed?
2) A brief description of the tools and methods introduced;
3) In which language is it obtainable and how can it be purchased, is
it published or only available via the organisation? (please enclose
contact details, incl. e-mail if applicable).
Thank you very much in advance for your help and co-operation, it is
BRIDGE (briefings on development and gender) is an innovative informa-
tion and analysis service specialising in gender and development is-
sues. BRIDGE's objective is to assist development professionals and or-
ganisations to integrate gender concerns into their work. As part of
the Institute of Development Studies (a non-profit institution), BRIDGE
aims to cover costs rather than make profits. BRIDGE briefings present
state of the art research findings, review current policy debates, syn-
thesise best practice and evaluate strategies for translating gender
policies into practice.
The BRIDGE web site can be found at:
which holds the back copies of our bulletin, 'development and gender in
brief' and links to other gender and development material.
