As part of its continuing efforts to provide technical assistance on the preparation and crafting of the Gender and Development (GAD) Plan and Budget of the University of the Philippines (UP), the UP Center for Women’s and Gender Studies (UPCWGS) conducted a Seminar-Workshop on the Preparation of the GAD Plan and Budget: Deepening Session on the Harmonized GAD Guidelines (HGDG) on 5-6 September 2017 at the Balay Kalinaw Conference Hall, UP Diliman. Members of the GAD Focal Point System (GFPS) and the staff of the accounting and budget offices of the UP constituent universities (CUs) attended the event. Reina P. Olivar, GAD consultant, served as resource person.
The seminar-workshop aims to increase the capacity of UP’s GFPS to mainstream GAD in the regular programs of the University and to reflect these in the GAD Plan and Budget, which could eventually be attributed and reported in the UP GAD Accomplishment Report. The workshop will guide the members of the UP GFPS in the development of programs of work with GAD perspective.
