Title: Mainstreaming Gender and Environment Capstone

GHD gives students plenty of opportunities to gain working experiences and build hard skills needed to solve development challenges around the globe. The Capstone Project is the final step in this process, giving students the chance to put their knowledge to practice, and students can work on a variety of projects that fit their interests.

Working in pairs, the Project is designed to provide students with the opportunity to bring together the knowledge and skills they have acquired throughout the program and apply them to a real-world challenge identified jointly with an client organization working in the development field. The Capstone Project comprises much of students’ second year in the program, and offers a practitioner-focused opportunity to demonstrate their mastery of their coursework.

Bradley and Shirin (GHD’22) share their GHD capstone project: Mainstreaming Gender and Environment to Achieve Inclusive, Sustainable Economic Growth in El Salvador in this video. Hopefully you can get some inspiration from their work!
