Local Political Leaders – Capacitating Women in Politics
Deadline: 31 January 2016

“International Training Programmes (ITPs) are used as one of the tools in Swedish global development policy to alleviate poverty. Commissioned by the Swedish International Development Agency (Sida), the International Centre for Local Democracy (ICLD) offers ITPs as one of several methods to support institutional capacity development on the local level in low and middle income countries. The ITPs are designed to meet the needs for capacity and competence development in co-operational countries and to support Sweden’s development goals. The objective is to contribute to increased insights, expand international contacts and development of strategically important competence within private sector, public administration and civil society organizations. The ITPs are intended to provide long-term support to development cooperation and to create opportunities to establish well-functioning and long-lasting networks and partnerships. The ITP methodology is based on the assumption that your local government wishes to carry out changes and is willing to invest its own resources to achieve these changes. The long-term perspective of the programmes are intended to contribute to the strengthening of institutional capacity in the participant countries. The ITPs are specially designed for persons qualified to participate and implement organizational changes within their organizations, either through their position or through a mandate from the organization leadership. The training focuses on supporting institutional plans for change and so it is essential that the plans be well established within participant organizations. Gender equality is a cross-cutting theme of the ITPs as gender discrimination is one of the main causes of poverty and a major obstacle to equitable and sustainable global human development. Local political leaders are key actors in the attainment of sustainable local democratic development. Due to the severe underrepresentation of women holding highlevel elected positions, i.e. Mayors, ViceMayors and Councillors in local political leadership, they will be the target group for this programme. The “Local Political Leaders – Capacitating Women in Politics” will focus exclusively on building the capacity of elected women leaders, believing that they have the potential to act as advocates and role models for other women who may consider making a career in politics. This brochure includes information on the specific objectives for this programme, its content, structure, and how and when to apply. Enclosed you will find an application form and we urge you to nominate candidates for the “Local Political Leaders – Capacitating Women in Politics” programme,” Olov Berggren Secretary General ICLD

Strategies for Chemicals Management
Deadline: 1 March 2016

“This Advanced International Training Programme (ITP) is specially designed for people qualified to participate in major reform processes on different levels and employed in ministries and authorities with a mandate to run change processes. It offers support to enhance, adapt and maintain capacity over time in order for your organisation to define and achieve goals in both the short- and long-term. Participants will learn about the latest developments in your area of work under the supervision of skilled Swedish colleagues and experts, have the opportunity to develop a network of colleagues from other countries and enhance their knowledge of new working methods. The methodology used is based on the assumption that your organisation wishes to make changes and is willing to invest its own resources to achieve these changes. Chemicals are used in everyday life and contribute to our improved health and welfare. However, the use of hazardous chemicals without relevant knowledge and preventive measures causes severe problems in many countries both for humans and environment. The aim of chemicals management is to build up a preventive system including the classification and labelling of chemical products, so action can be taken towards a non-toxic environment. In the programme, we focus on roles and responsibilities at the start of the supply chain in the country so users of chemicals can get relevant information from the suppliers. The Swedish Chemicals Agency (KemI) is a regulatory and supervisory authority under the Ministry of the Environment and Energy, spreading Swedish and international experience in the area of management, control (enforcement), assessment and risk reduction of chemicals. In this brochure you will find information on the specific objectives for this particular programme, its content and structure, and how and when to apply. The scheduled programmes will be September 12 – October 4, 2016, in Stockholm, Sweden, and April 24 – 28, 2017, in a country in one of the regions. Sida and the Swedish Chemicals Agency hereby invites you to nominate suitable candidates,” Lena Ingelstam, director SIDA and Nina Cromnier, director genereal SWEDISH CHEMICALS AGENCY
