This interactive workshop manual is intended for training UNFPA and other UN-related development practitioners on the basics of how to communicate, negotiate and mediate about culturally sensitive issues. It includes an important programming tool - the Culture Lens - developed by UNFPA, as well as discussion of how it relates to international development goals, and how it can be applied. It also includes case studies from different national contexts and articles/reference documents related to culture.

The workshop materials are based on the premise that culture is an essential conduit to the realization of human rights in general, and gender equality in particular.
