There are four ongoing projects within the UNDP Armenia Women Empowerment and Gender Equality Programme (the Programme).

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.
SDC and ADA funded “Women’s Economic Empowerment in South Caucasus” project, implemented by UN Women in partnership with UNDP Armenia aims to ensure that women, particularly the poor and socially excluded, particularly those from Shirak and Gegharkunik regions are economically empowered and participate in relevant decision-making. The project aims to contribute to the following three outcomes: (i) women, particularly the poor and socially excluded, use skills, economic opportunities and relevant information to be self-employed and/or to join the formal labour sector in Armenia (grass-roots level); (ii) government and public institutions develop and deliver gender-responsive programmes, public services, strategies and plans for women’s economic empowerment in Armenia (institutional level).
“Gender Equality in Public Administration of Armenia” project focuses on: revamping the procedures and practices in selected public bodies to promote women’s role in higher levels of public administration; enhancing the training, staff development and coaching functions with focus on promoting young women cadre, based on the Gender Policy Strategic Action Plan for 2017-2021; developing the how-to guides for all levels of public administration, etc.
“Women and Youth in Innovative Local Development” project (WYILD), 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. WYILD 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.

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.
