Review of Gender and Development Training

Gender equality is a key goal of Australian and international development work, and is recognized by the United Nations (UN) in Millennium Development Goal 3: Promote gender equality and empower women.

Gender equality is viewed as a key goal due to its’ intrinsic ethical worth, but is also a critical factor in encouraging economic development and improving child health. In order to advance the goal of facilitating gender equality through development work, AusAID is committed to ensure that its’ staff have good knowledge and understanding of gender issues in development.

To this end, AusAID is requesting Expressions of Interest (EOI) to conduct a review of their gender training in conjunction with a needs assessment of AusAID's staff's understanding of gender in development
