The GIZ Support Project to the Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre (KAIPTC) has supported the KAIPTC in developing a Gender Policy, which was officially launched in September 2014 and is being implemented by the KAIPTC since September. Gender has increasingly become an issue in security and peacekeeping in Africa and throughout the world. Within this context also the KAIPTC strives to be a gender-sensitive institution and to increase the number of women who are trained at the center and to be deployed in peace support operations around the continent. GIZ supports the KAIPTC in achieving gender equity in all its operations as well as streamlining gender within the African Peace and Security Architecture.
A video visualizing the implementation process can be accessed here.
