In the last five years, ICH has increased its engagement with a range of gender programmes across all regions. ICH has focused on training and strengthening human capital, providing management tools to incorporate these principles into strategic and operational plans. The practical nature of the courses leads to more integration of knowledge into implementation practices using case studies and experienced practitioners. ICH training programmes offer an innovative approach to the hydropower sector’s environmental, social, and economic value creation. Prompting cultural transformation in participants work environments, adopting new trends, striving for efficiency in its value chain, and being responsive to the needs of the different stakeholders.
This course builds on the foundational knowledge introduced by the Gender and Hydropower training (Part I) held in Nepal in May 2019 and is designed to impart practical tools for companies and hydropower projects to ensure sustainable outcomes including a vibrant, diverse, and efficient workforce.
