“Strengthening the institutional capacity of duty-bearers and empowering rights-holders for the advancement of gender equality and women’s empowerment in Ethiopia” is a project implemented by UN Women.

By strengthening CSOs working in peacebuilding and conflict resolution, UN Women aims to support the promotion and implementation of the WPS agenda and the effective participation of women in conflict prevention, resolution, and peace building to create a cohesive, just, inclusive and democratic society.

CSOs play a critical role in implementing the Women Peace and Security (WPS) Agenda, and with strengthened capacity, they can more strategically develop evidence-based programs and advocate for and participate in the development of a WPS that is responsive to the needs of women and girls around the country.
