Women’s Economic Participation Project
Women’s Economic Participation’s Project is funded by the Government of Canada and in partnership with UNDP by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Lebanon.
In North and Mount Lebanon the project is implemented by a consortium led by René Moawad Foundation (RMF), and including four organizations: Berytech Foundation, DOT Lebanon, Atayeb El-Rif Association, and Committee for the Follow-up of Women’s Issues.
The project aims at contributing to the economic empowerment of women by addressing women’s limited access to, control of, and benefits from economic opportunities, through:
- Lebanese and Syrian refugee women gain strengthened capacities to integrate into market value chains according to the Lebanese labor law.
- Women-led businesses and cooperatives have improved productivity and competitiveness and increased access to assets, spurring innovation and addressing unfavorable resource control and ownership dynamics.
- Municipalities unions of municipalities have increased skills, knowledge, and means to be more actively involved in local economic development and are implementing interventions to support women economic empowerment.
- Public support increased and an enabling environment enhanced for women’s economic empowerment at household, community, business, and municipal levels.
