Global Equality Project

The programme has the strategic objective of deepening inclusive and accountable citizens’ participation in political and societal decision-making processes. Funded by the UK’s Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, the Global Equality Project (GEP), implemented between August 2021 to March 2022, will focus on exploring and strengthening gender equality, inclusion and rights of marginalised groups. To realize this, WFD will work with parliamentarians and officials, independent institutions, civil society organisations and other stakeholders.  

Gender equality, human rights, inclusivity, and support for thematic areas wherever appropriate are integrated in the work we do. This project will build on success recorded with the implementation of the Commonwealth Equality Project (CEP), which strengthened the use of law to advance the protection of women, girls and the vulnerable, against sexual and gender-based violence, using an evidence-based approach.
