This procedural manual, relating to the Equality, Equal Opportunities and Gender Approach Bodies (IEECAG), is to be considered as a procedural and technical guide available to the local communes. It is an informative and procedural reference, which can be consulted and used, at any time and according to the needs, by the local communes to ensure the good functioning of the IEECAG, once set up. This handbook presents the various elements likely to reinforce the capacities of these communes in the establishment, operation and follow-up of the IEECAGs. It is conceived and presented in an accessible form, in which elected officials and municipal officials and representatives of civil society can draw on information, approaches and tools to facilitate the operationalization of the projects of their IEECAG bodies.
