Preparation of Gender Agenda for Rural Development

Regional Workshop  – 24 Korrik 2013 – Brcko, Bosnje – Herzegovine

Members of AL-GARD Network participated in the Regional Workshop on the preparation of the Gender Agenda for Rural Development, held on 24 July 2013 in Brcko, Bosnia – Herzegovina (BiH).

The aim of the workshop was twofold:

  • To set the ground for the establishment and promotion of the GARD Regional Network;
  • To identify challenges and opportunities for the Civil Society Organizations for promoting a Gender Agenda for Rural Development at national and regional level.

Participants were representatives of GARD National Networks from Albania, Bosnia – Herzegovina and Croatia, as well as Civil Society Organizations and other stakeholders from BiH.

During the first part, through exercises and work in groups, participants were given the opportunity to present their organizations’ profile (mission, scope and areas of work) and share contacts and experiences with other similar organizations from the region.

During the second part of the workshop, participants “divided in thematic groups” had the opportunity to discuss the challenges and opportunities for the Civil Society Organizations for promoting a Gender Agenda for Rural Development at national and regional level

The next regional workshop on developing Gender Agenda in Rural Development will be held on 25 July, 2013 in Osijek, Croatia.
