UN-ESCWA conducted a sub-regional workshop on “Integrating Gender Mainstreaming in the National Policies of the Arab Mashreq Countries” in Amman, Jordan, from 5 to 7 February. Experts Islah Jad and Taghrid Khoury trained 20 employees from the National Machineries for Women (NMW) and various specialized ministries in Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, and Palestine. Participants concluded the workshop with recommendations on how to integrate gender mainstreaming in the different sectors and ministries of countries in the Mashreq. UN-ESCWA is planning to organize a similar workshop for the Gulf countries later on.
