In order to build the capacity of participating organisations to address gender issues adequately so that human rights and in particular the right to lead a life free of violence can be achieved equally for women and men, two training workshops will be held. The first training focuses on gender issues concerning human rights achievement and major tools to analyse and identify gender issues which contribute to the high prevalence of gender based violence in Cambodia. This will be followed by a field exercise where participants practice these tools. The second training then concentrates on the principles and practical implications of the Gender and Development Approach (GAD). Based on the findings from the field exercise and lessons learnt from the GAD approach participants will then identify concrete activities to address gender based violence more effectively and to promote the achievement of human rights equally for women and men.
