Training on Gender in the Ganges Basin Development Challenge Program
The CPWF Ganges Basin Development Challenge Program’s first gender training session proved to be an enlightening experience for the 13 participants in Dhaka, Bangladesh
Held on 11 - 12 September, the training session featured plenty of interactive discussions and debates, as participants from G1 to G5 related the concepts and issues to their own personal lives, and the people they work with.
The training also enabled them to identify areas where gender can be further integrated into each Ganges project as work plans were designed and presented.
Organized by WorldFish and facilitated by Bangladesh Nari Pragati Sangha (BNPS), the training participants included scientists, engineers and researchers from various government and non government partner organizations. These included the Institute of Water Modelling (IWM), Bangladesh Water Development Board (BWDB) and the Local Government Engineering Department (LGED) to the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) and WorldFish.
