This manual, 'Gender in Local Government: A Sourcebook for Trainers' is designed to assist training institutions in mainstreaming gender incapacity building for local government. It consists of gender concepts, gender analysis and tools in areas of local government.
The following key issues of local governance have been selected:
- participation in local government,
- land rights,
- urban planning,
- service provision,
- local government financing,
- violence against women and
- local economic development.
Numerous case studies illustrate what local governments can do to strengthen gender mainstreaming in their work.
