UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security.

This project aims to contribute towards the longer-term outcome of women’s full and effective participation in equal opportunities for leadership at all levels of decision-making in political and public life. In order to achieve the longer-term outcome; the project will contribute towards four sub-outcome areas:

Outcome 1: Legal and Policy frameworks promote gender balance throughout the electoral cycle

Outcome 2:A cadre of interested, diverse and capable women political leaders is formed at national and sub-national levels

Outcome 3: Significantly increased perception of women as equally legitimate and effective political leaders as men

Outcome 4: Women are promoted as leaders in gender sensitive political institutions
