As part of the Project “Anti-Corruption, Rule of Law and Accountability in Ghana” (ARAP), the first workshop on mainstreaming a gender perspective. was held in Accra.
The event was organised to validate research carried out by experts who drew up a document to study routes and a methodology for succeeding in mainstreaming a gender perspective in the project.
The study suggested two main challenges: reducing the specific effects of corruption on women and strengthening the role of women in the fight against corruption.
This document was discussed and rounded out in the workshop with the aim of its being approved by all the project partners and has succeeded in involving all the institutions, which have taken on the challenge of mainstreaming a gender perspective.
Proof of this is the commitment that has been made by the institutions involved to creating specific gender indicators for each line of work in the very near future.
The document also includes some tools that will make mainstreaming a gender perspective easier in each of the institutions and activities of the project and will also help to monitor the work that is being done.
An initial assessment of the progress made in this direction will take place at a second gender workshop, planned for next spring.
