The Local Government Gender Action Plan Manual is a product of the Training of Trainer (TOT) workshop that took place in Johannesburg in February 2009. The workshop brought together representatives of gender and local government ministries, local government authorities, associations of local government and civil society from the three case study countries of the Gender Links (GL) study: At the Coalface, Gender and Local Government. The three countries are Botswana, Swaziland and Zambia
The Zambia manual is designed as a complement to the Local Government Gender Strategy developed in February 2009 and provides the tools for understanding what gender mainstreaming is; why it is important; and how to go about developing a gender action plan.
