CDKN has developed a pack of presentations and exercises for facilitators to use in training settings, to help climate and development professionals to integrate gender perspectives into climate projects and programmes. Specifically, the training aims to help participants:

- Understand internationally accepted and widely committed frameworks for gender equality in development and climate action.
- Understand why gender and social inclusion are relevant to climate policies, programmes and activities.
- Learn how to think critically about gender and social inclusion issues throughout a typical programme / project cycle, from the design and consultation stages, through planning, budgeting, delivery and monitoring and evaluation.
- Appreciate how gender-responsive and socially-inclusive approaches increase the effectiveness and sustainability of climate action; and how gender-blind approaches undermine the effectiveness of climate action.
- Learn about tried, tested and recommended tools for identifying and addressing gender- and social inclusion-related concerns and be able to apply them, through guided group work and practice.
- Learn how to set outcomes, targets and indicators for gender-equitable, socially inclusive outcomes and how to develop budgets to ensure that activities achieve these outcomes.
- Learn from the experiences of other practitioners. As well as all providing best practice examples from CDKN and international sources, in of the training modules and exercises are designed so that participants share knowledge and experience with each other.
