Danish Gov’t Extends Hand for Gender Equality, Democracy

March 30 , 2019

The Danish Government has signed a cooperation agreement with UNDP and UN Women to provide 4.5 million dollars for the two agencies in support of their work in Ethiopian governance and gender equality. From the total, three million dollars will go to UN Women to build on its ongoing support and to expand a program for preventing and responding to violence against women and a program to increase the participation of women in leadership. The rest of the funding will go towards Supporting Elections for Ethiopia’s Democracy Strengthening (SEEDS) project. UNDP will be coordinating this multi-agency project that seeks to assist Ethiopia with holding a credible and transparent election.
