Closing Ceremony. “This is the first course of its kind, however I am convinced that our mutual commitment to implement gender perspectives and the cooperation between NCGM, UNDP/SEESAC and PSOTC will continue and increase during the years to come”, says Jan Dunmurray. He continues: “The engagement from the course participants really exceeded my expectations, and it was great to see the participant’s excellent performances during their individual performances. We now have new Gender-trainers ready to continue the important task to improve the capacity building in their own national armed forces.”
As part of gender capacity building in Western Balkans region, the cooperation between NCGM and UNDP SEESAC has resulted in conducting a Gender Training of Trainers (GToT) course. The course was hosted by the Peace Support Operations Training Centre (PSOTC) in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
“To the NCGM, the PSOTC is a great partner and our cooperation works very smoothly”, Cdr Jan Dunmurray, the Commander of NCGM said when the course started the 5th of March.
He was right! PSOTC is a well functioned Training Centre and capable to perform high class training in Peace Support Operations.
Dr. Ivan Zverzhanovski, Coordinator of UNDP/SEESAC which sponsors the project, was also attending the course as a student. “This course conducted by NCGM from Sweden has made it possible to train own trainers as an important step in order to integrate gender perspectives in the region.”
