UNDP Armenia, in partnership with the RA Ministry of Territorial Administration and Infrastructure, continuously implements projects on women empowerment, gender equality and youth leadership in Armenia. There are four ongoing projects within the UNDP Armenia Women Empowerment and Gender Equality Programme (the Programme). Two of the projects - “Women in Politics” and “Women and Youth in Innovative Local Development” include components aimed at advancement of youth leadership, nudging their voice and action at community level, as well as supporting youth participation in policy making.
“Women in Politics” project funded by UK Good Governance Fund aims at advancement of youth leadership and women political empowerment. The project works in the following directions: (i) exploring policy gaps for women political participation from grassroots to national level; (ii) advancing leadership potential and skills of women in communities of Armenia vis-a-vis community development processes and ongoing reforms; (iii) advancing the role and capacities of political parties for advancing women in politics; (iv) policy dialogue on gender equality and participatory democracy in the context of local development and ongoing reforms from local to subnational and national levels; (v) advancing discourse on issues of gender equality and women participation at all levels through advocacy and public campaigns; (vi) empower youth in the communities as enablers of local democracy and women support groups through empathy-building leadership models.
“Women and Youth in Innovative Local Development” project (WYILD Project), funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, dwells on women political empowerment in enlarged communities, youth local leadership and citizen-driven public services. WUILD Project has a goal to improve the accountability, effectiveness and inclusiveness of local self-government in Armenia in regionally and socially balanced manner. The Project is implemented in partnership with RA Ministry of Territorial Administration and Infrastructure and is the continuation of earlier “Women in Local Democracy 2” project. It supports 52 enlarged municipalities with coherent and interrelated programmatic intervention, which contributes to the further democratization and development of communities. WYILD Project will: (i) pilot three innovative municipal services which will be co-designed and monitored by citizens, including vulnerable/marginalized groups; (ii) further advance youth leadership; and (iii) continue to empower women at the local level through building on and upscaling the results achieved during the past years.
In view of the COVID-19 pandemic situation both projects envisage implementation of a number of activities on local level with engagement of project beneficiaries to address the economic, social, political consequences.
