Gender Equality and Development
Our work is guided by the premise that the promotion of gender equality is both a means for development and an end for the enjoyment of human rights by women and men.

Through advocacy and networking with civil society organizations, opinion leaders, and decision-makers, it is expected that gender equality and access to and enjoyment of women's rights will be furthered.
