Integrating Gender Considerations in Bolivia’s Public Service (Phase Two)

Project Profile

The Technical Assistance Partnership-Expert Deployment Mechanism (TAP-EDM) project, in collaboration with Tracy Apoll, a renowned Canadian expert in gender and development issues, is partnering with the Public Management School of Pluri-national Bolivia (EGPP) to create a Diploma program focused on Gender Equality and Decolonization. This course will be tailored to the specific needs and realities of Bolivia and it will ultimately be offered to Bolivian public officials through the EGPP.

The primary aim of this initiative is to assist the Bolivian government in advancing gender equality and incorporating Gender-Based Analysis Plus (GBA Plus) into its policy framework. Additionally, this initiative seeks to explore how gender considerations can be seamlessly integrated into other critical public sector priorities, including environmental protection and indigenous rights.

Tracy, working alongside a local expert, will provide specialized GBA Plus training and a train-the-trainer program for new facilitators from the EGPP and various government institutions. Together, they will collaborate with relevant stakeholders to develop the diploma course, curricula, educational materials, and case studies on depatriarchalization and decolonization in government policy.
