Georgia has made significant progress in adopting legislative and policy reforms to foster gender equality in the recent period. However, important challenges still impede women’s political participation, economic empowerment and social development. Persistent gender inequality is also considered as one of the major constrains to more sustainable and inclusive development.
Women are underrepresented in decision-making positions both on the national and local levels. In parallel with this, the capacities of the local authorities to design and deliver development oriented, evidence-based, inclusive, participatory and gender-sensitive services and policies are insufficient.
The amendments to the Gender Equality Law, made in April 2016, introduced new obligations for local self-governments to institutionalize gender equality mechanisms at the local level. UNDP has been providing targeted support to the municipalities to strengthen their capacities and support gender institutional mechanisms, but further efforts are needed to address persistent challenges.
Therefore, conducting Participatory Gender Audit in Tbilisi City Hall (TCH), the major executive body of Tbilisi Municipality with over 1 million inhabitants, would help to identify critical gaps and challenges related to gender equality and elaborate ways of addressing them, suggest possible improvements and innovations. A participatory gender audit is a tool and a process based on a participatory methodology to promote organizational learning at the individual, work unit and organizational levels on how to practically and effectively mainstream gender.
UNDP project Fostering Decentralization and Good Governance at the Local Level in Georgia (DGG) pays special attention to strengthening gender equality at the local level, increasing the capacities of the local decision-making institutions to address gender equality challenges, advance gender mainstreaming into the local programming and ensure that gender equality and women’s empowerment principles are incorporated across all local initiatives.
Accordingly, the project supports municipalities to identify gender equality challenges and design and implement the policies to overcome them.
