Building peace in the minds of men and women

STEM and Gender Advancement (SAGA)

Training workshops and events

Several activities and training workshops have been conducted between 2015 and 2018 to achieve project outcomes and to reinforce capacities in pilot countries. The map below shows the countries in which SAGA had training workshops and on-going activities.

Nine national and two sub-regional workshops have been conducted involving 26 Member States. Nine countries from Africa (Benin, Côte d’Ivoire, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, and Togo), eleven Arab States (Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria and Tunisia), one country from Asia and the Pacific (Thailand), two in Latin America (Argentina and Uruguay), two in the Caribbean (Haiti and Jamaica) and one from Europe and North America (the province of Quebec in Canada). There is currently a high demand for the implementation of the SAGA project. For instance, Chile and Kenya, have requested to implement the project at a national level and are even self-financing the whole implementation. There are upcoming training workshops in New Delhi and Sri Lanka to discuss the implementation of the project, a sub- regional workshop in Namibia and capacity-building workshops in Panama for eight Central American countries.
