CONSULTANCY: REVIEW OF TRAINING MANUAL FOR CIVIL SOCIETY ORGANIZATIONS ON PERIODIC REPORTING ON WOMEN’S RIGHTS INSTRUMENTS IN AFRICA

Equality Now in partnership with UNDP seeks to equip Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) with knowledge on state party reporting and parallel reporting processes by CSOs through submission of alternative/shadow reports on the situation of gender equality and women’s rights issues such as violence against women and girls, female genital mutilation and child marriage in Africa. Considering this, Equality Now and UNDP engaged a consultant to develop a Training Manual for CSOs on periodic reporting on women’s rights in Africa. The Manual will serve as a resource guide for facilitators/ trainers undertaking capacity enhancement of CSOs in Africa as well as a reference document for organizations intent on developing periodic reports on women’s rights instruments. Additionally, the Training Manual will be instructive for CSOs seeking to train other organizations engaged in advancing women’s rights in the process of periodic reporting.
