The event was organised in close cooperation with the gender desks of DG DEVCO and DG NEAR of the European Commission and benefited from the participation of the Trust Fund managers of the EU Emergency Trust Fund for Africa and the EU Regional Trust Fund in Response to the Syrian Crisis (MADAD).

The main objectives of the workshop were (i) to assess the ground and interest for a work stream or working group on gender ii) to collect opinions and inputs with the European Commission on how the Practitioner’s Network could best contribute to the application of a gender-responsive approach to the preparation and implementation of Trust Fund programmes and (iii) to explore the interest/need for creating Practitioners’ Network Guidelines on gender mainstreaming in EU Trust Funds that include best practices and common understandings with the aim of finding common European solutions to overcome challenges.
