Equality for local development: gender mainstreaming in municipalities

15.07.2015 / Created by (EMWF)

The project aimed at increasing analytical and practical capacities of local authorities in order to implement real gender equality policies. It has been organized by CWSP, coordinator of the project in Bulgaria, in partnership with the Office of the Equal Opportunities Ombudsperson and the Ministry of Social Security and Labour (Lithuania) as well as the Gender Equality Commissioner (Estonia). The main project activities were focused on strengthening the capacity of municipalities to mainstream gender in their work by using the 3R method, the gender integration analysis and the gender budgeting. Thus, municipal servants and municipal councilors targeted by the project have been trained about these methods through seminars and study visits.

In Bulgaria, three municipalities made the first steps in the implementation of gender mainstreaming at local level.

This practice has been selected in the framework of the CSO WINS project (Capacity-building in the Southern Mediterranean to Open policy dialogue and monitoring for Women IN Society), with the support of the European Union’s Neighbourhood Civil Society Facility.
