The Centres of Excellence (COE) for Gender is a follow up to the gender and local government research, strategies and Gender and GBV action plans roll-out that have been taking place since 2007 across 430 municipalities in the SADC region that Gender Links has been working with.

Sustainability is key going forward with the COE process. In 2014, GL and partners held forward strategic planning meetings with representatives of all partners and stakeholders collaborating in the implementation of the COE programme in Namibia and Mauritius.
