Speciﬁ cally, the Training will provide participants with: • Increased awareness of the obligations under CEDAW and UNSC resolution 1325, and how these obligations can be practically applied at the national and local levels; • Improved understanding on the linkages between the core principles found in CEDAW and UNSC resolution 1325; • Concepts and practical suggestions for advocates in government and civil society on how to advocate for and support the effective implementation of CEDAW and UNSC resolution 1325 at the national and local levels.
The Training Module is set up within a two-day schedule, with 8 hours per day allocated for the training. Recognising that gender equality advocates in government, civil society, media, academia, IDP communities, international organizations and youth organizations may have varying levels of knowledge, the Training Module has two levels – Introductory and Intermediate. "Introductory" Level is for those who have had only limited exposure to the concept of gender, and have very limited knowledge of CEDAW and UNSC resolution 1325. The "Intermediate" Level is for those who have a solid background on gender issues, and have had exposure to CEDAW and UNSC resolution 1325, but need support in understanding the linkages between the two documents and how to improve their national applications. The Training Module has been prepared so that the trainers may shift back and forth between "Introductory" and "Intermediate" Levels over the course of the two days, if needed.
