he Gender Training Community of Practice started its Fourth Virtual Dialogue on "Gender Training for Humanitarian Aid" on March 15 until May 21, 2010.

The GT CoP is starting a new project on �Participatory Development of Resources for Gender Training in Humanitarian Assistance�, in cooperation with OXFAM Canada and therefore initiated a new Virtual Dialogue on this topic!
In this discussion the GT CoP will reflect upon the gender training and capacity building processes necessary to mainstream gender in Humanitarian Aid in general and also look more closely at the situation in Haiti, trying to make useful recommendations for humanitarian aid workers.
The aim of this dialogue is to analyze gender training in humanitarian action, including methodologies and resources, as well as collecting systematic information about the integration of a gender perspective in humanitarian action in different emergency and post emergency situations and their implications for gender training, including humanitarian action currently taking place in Haiti after the earthquake on January 12, 2010.
It will take place on the new GT CoP Virtual Dialogue Platform! Please download the Instructions to participate in the Virtual Dialogue and the Concept Note in english and spanish for the Fourth Virtual Dialogue!
