The project aims to enable women and men in Côte d’Ivoire to benefit from a political environment conducive to the achievement of sustainable development goals. Project activities include: (1) strengthening the technical capabilities of women mediators in preventing and managing the risk of election violence, including gender-based violence; (2) supporting the early warning platform for the production of material to raise awareness on preventing violence against women during the elections; (3) supporting civil society organizations in activities to raise awareness about the participation of women and girls in the electoral process; and (4) strengthening the technical capabilities of officers of the Independent Electoral Commission on the gender disaggregation of electoral data collected.
