                Gender equality is a cross-cutting issue in Danish development

                members with some understanding of and experience with gender
                equality as well as those not familiar with gender concepts.

Objectives/     The overall objective of the course is to enable all MFA staff in

                      a means by which to achieve other development goals;
                    To understand and use the links between the Paris
