14.5. Participants' information note

RWEDP has organised a Sub-regional Training Course on Women and Wood Energy Development, at FAD-RAP, Bangkok, Thailand, 27 November -1 December.

The Training Course is a follow-up of the Regional Expert Consultation on Gender and Wood Energy in Asia, Chiang Mai, Thailand, June 1995. For the Training Course in Bangkok, participants are invited from the RWEDP-member countries in South-Asia (Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka), as well as a limited number of observers.


It is widely recognised that the burden of supplying woodfuels for household use in the region is largely carried by women. These women often suffer from rising prices, decreasing fuel quality and increased difficulty of access to woodfuel sources. Many policy changes in pricing of fossil fuels, conservation of forests, and landuse controls also have a disproportionately negative impact on women, especially women from the lower income groups. In order to mitigate the problems that women in particular, but also other groups, face in connection with wood energy, it is necessary to review any planned interventions in the light of their relative impact on different groups within society: men, women, children, minorities, etc. This is important since the problems of women or any other group cannot be separated from the context in which they occur. The approach is known as a gender approach. In recent years, a large number of analytic and data gathering tools have been developed which can simplify the problem of assessing such differential impacts.

The general objective of the course is to familiarise trainees with the use of gender analytic tools and review and assess their appropriateness. The specific objective is to provide trainees with the means to select, modify or design operational procedures to ensure that gender issues are covered in the project design/appraisal process.


The main subjects in the course programme (all with respect to wood energy development) will be:


The course is intended for higher and middle-level staff from institutions and departments concerned with wood energy planning, policies and strategies in RWEDP member countries in South Asia. Participants will be from the forestry sector, the energy sector and NGOs, i.e. 1 per named category (or equivalent) from each of the RWEDP-member countries in South Asia. They will link to the implementer level of projects and programmes. Females as well as males will be in these categories.

Participants in the course should be nominated by their own organisation in which they hold a relevant position as indicated above, have a good command of English, and be in good health.

Participants are expected to report to RWEDP on follow-up activities in their own organisation. Some participants may be invited for a regional follow-up training sometime in 1996. Participants are invited to bring videos, if available, which link to the subjects of the course.

Nominees should complete the attached nomination form which is to be received by RWEDP before 1 November 1995.


The costs of the course will be covered by RWEDP, including accomodation based on DSA. Participants' travels to and from Bangkok will be covered by RWEDP. Participants are to arrive in Bangkok on Sunday 26 November and depart on Saturday 2 December.
