Genre et gestion du savoir

Project completed

The PEGIN programme will strengthen the Federation of Cuban Women and other organizations that are influential in promoting gender equity in Cuba. PEGIN aims to contribute to the reduction of gender inequalities which risk being reinforced by the process of economic and social reform. PEGIN will facilitate the building of national advocacy platforms. These will have the capacity to coordinate sensitization projects for the population and political decision-makers alike, as well as to promote measures of affirmative action in support of gender equality. The outcomes are: A. Leading organizations supporting gender equity have increased their capacity for political incidence at national level, and they have political incidence in national processes. B. National and municipal authorities demonstrate interest in affirmative action as an instrument of public policy for promoting gender equity.
