Increased focus on sustainability in our learning programmes
We develop and offer programmes according to needs of the strategic sector cooperations and other Danida-funded programmes. In line with Denmark’s strategy for development cooperation, our learning programmes are increasingly including elements on sustainability. In 2022, we offered a total of 47 learning programmes of which 20 had an environmental/sustainability focus. 425 people participated in these 20 learning programmes, equivalent to 42.8 % of the total numbers of participants in our learning programmes in 2022.
Male and female participants
In the selection of candidates to our learning programmes, a number of factors are taken into account: link to and prioritization by the programme nominating the candidate, qualification, motivation, and approaching a balanced mix between countries, gender and type of organisations.
The majority of participants in the learning programme are men (55.9%), however female representation has increased a little from 40% in 2021 to 44.1% in 2022. The percentage of women that participated in the learning programmes in 2022 (44.1%) is almost equal to the percentage of women being nominated (43.6%).
