UN Women: Supporting Syrian Women’s Engagement in the Syrian Political Process


UN Women's project aims at supporting the participation of Syrian women in the process in two ways. The project will 1) Support the Women's Advisory Board (WAB) with targeted capacity development and technical support to enable their meaningful role in support of the Special Envoy and his mediation efforts; and 2) Reinforce a unified Syrian women movement around a common agenda. The project is very well aligned with the Finnish Strategy for Development Cooperation and Humanitarian aid in response to the conflicts in Syria and Iraq 2017–2020 and with the Women, Peace and Security National Action Plan. Finnish support is 800.000 Euros for the time of 7/2018 - 12/2019.
