To properly attribute Gender and Development (GAD) S&T and R&D projects and programs, the National Research Council of the Philippines had a two-day training workshop using the Harmonized Gender and Development Guidelines (HGDG) on August 1-2, 2019 at the NRCP Auditorium, Bicutan, Taguig City.
Ms. Maricar R. Chan, a member of the National GAD Resource Pool of the Philippine Commission on Women, and a freelance GAD practitioner, led the two-day training-workshop and shared the importance of mainstreaming gender in projects, programs, and activities of NRCP. She gave a review on the basic concepts of GAD followed by an orientation on the HGDG which included the generic checklist and sector specific checklist, as well as GAD guidelines for project identification, management and implementation, monitoring and evaluation. A significant part of the workshop was the NRCP personnel learned to translate results of the HGDG in the GAD plan and budget.
The training-workshop was participated by NRCP employees and some NRCP members who actively contributed on attributing gender to the NRCP-funded project proposals and projects.
