Joint E-Discussion on Gender Equality, Justice, Peace- and Statebuilding (Gendernet and CHR): April / May 2016

As a preparation for the F2F and in order to use the networks' learning and experiences to support effective SDG implementation in the field of gender equality, justice, peace- and statebuilding the SDC Gender and CHR networks conducted a joint e-discussion from 25 April to 9 May 2016. Basis for the e-discussion was an input paper, which was sent to all participants with the launch of the discussion. It highlights the gender dimensions of conflict and fragility, links gender with state- and peacebuilding and contains the most important references.

The discussion was based on questions how to integrate gender across the 5 PSGs to support SDG5 and 16, what challenges COOF's face in doing this, how they integrate a gender lens in their context analysis and what is new with agenda 2030. A report of the e-discussion summarises the most important issues from the 28 contributions from COOF's from all over the world and SDC partners. The rich fundus of experiences can also be accessed in form of a compilation of all contributions.

A video interview with Flurina Derungs from the Interdisciplinary Centre for Gender Studies (University of Bern) who was responsible for the e-discussion presents the main findings. Even though there were many valuable contributions only some examples can be discussed. A big thanks to all of you who contributed to this very lively and inspiring e-discussion!

Joint E-Discussions around Gender & Finances (Gendernet and DDLGN): May 2015

In 2015 there were two joint E-Discussions among two different SDC-networks around Gender & Finances, the Gendernet as well as the Democratisation, Decentralisation and Local Governance Network (DDLGN). In May there was a stock-take on GENDER and FISCAL DECENTRALISATION. This exchange focused on the gender dimension in intergovernmental fiscal transfer schemes. Given this theme is a ‘frontier topic’ with limited conceptual development and references to country cases, the consultation was framed as a ‘stock-take’ with the aim to build up a first information base. This first E-Discussion on Gender & Fiscal Decentralisation was followed by a second one on GENDER and TAXATION in September. This discussion focused on the gendered impacts of tax policy and tax administration. The potential  methods of engagement for development partners was discussed as a cross-cutting topic.
