The manual has been designed for the training of trainers (ToT) programme for media and civil society on gender and security in Nepal. This activity is part of a broader project by the Institute of Human Rights Communication (IHRICON) and Saferworld, with support from the Swiss Development Corporation, which strengthens the development and implementation of gender-sensitive policy and programming on security in Nepal.
The manual is designed for a three-day workshop. It is accompanied by two sets of PowerPoint slides: Gender and security and Security and security sector reform (SSR) and a Companion workbook. The workbook contains tools, hand-outs, briefing information sheets and selected reading materials. It has been designed to be as helpful as possible to trainers. It also contains daily learning diaries and lists of resources on gender and security issues for journalists and civil society. The workbook can be given to participants for use during the workshop and for future reference.
