UN Women call for proposals to Strengthening Civil Society Capacities and Multi-Stakeholder Partnerships to advance women’s rights and gender equality in Turkey.

The project ‘Strengthening civil society capacities and multi-stakeholder partnerships to advance women’s rights and gender equality in Turkey’ to be implemented by UN Women Turkey Office between April 2021 and March 2024 with funding from the European Union aims to reduce gender inequalities by enhancing the ability of civil society organizations (CSOs) to be agents of transformative change towards gender equality and women’s rights.

The specific objective of the project is “Women's rights groups, women-led CSOs and other relevant rights based CSOs, including those representing youth and groups facing multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination / marginalization, more effectively influence the gender equality and women’s empowerment agenda at the national and local levels.”
