manualThis manual has been produced in the framework of the project “END FGM. Cooperation, synergies and structured dialogue among civil society and EU institutions to address female genital mutilation as a development issue”, coordinated by Associazione Italiana Donne per lo Sviluppo (AIDOS), Italy. The manual has been developed to address FGM as a gender and development issue, by mainstreaming activities for its abandonment in all development policies and programmes. It is meant to be a practical tool to be used by skilled trainers for training EU Local Authorities officials (LAs) and project managers of Non State Actors (NSAs) when implementing development projects and programmes, or current social intervention projects. The manual aims at enabling them to better understand the facts, root causes and socio-cultural dimensions of the practice, gain knowledge about the most successful interventions and be able to design programmes/ projects which also address FGM.
