Equal participation of women and men in all aspects of society is crucial for lasting growth and democracy, and also symbolises a society’s level of political maturity. To obtain political will for gender mainstreaming is a difficult task to carry out if both women and men are not fully and equally involved in political life, public life and in decision-making.
The project “Equality for Local Development: Gender Mainstreaming in Municipalities” aims at fostering sustainable change in local communities by encouraging the balanced participation of women and men in the social and economic development of their community; increasing the analytical and practical capacities of local authorities to implement real gender equality policies by ensuring that different interests, values and life experiences would be taken into account when decisions are made at the local level.
