Project Brief - Strengthening civil society capacities and multi-stakeholder partnerships to advance women's rights and gender equality in Turkey

The "Strengthening civil society capacities and multi-stakeholder partnerships to advance women’s rights and gender equality in Turkey" project will help women’s rights groups, women-led civil society organizations (CSOs) and other relevant rights-based CSOs improve their capacity to influence national and local women’s rights and gender equality agendas.

Working with civil society actors as knowledge partners, implementing partners and advocates, UN Women Turkey will help enhance their access to capacity development opportunities and resources. UN Women Turkey's support will include technical assistance and grants for networking, knowledge and experience sharing, capacity development, data- and evidence-based advocacy and for empowering partnerships with public institutions, local authorities and academic institutions. Given the disproportionate social and economic impacts that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on women and girls, UN Women Turkey will give attention to addressing its challenges.

The European Union is financing this project under the "Civil society facility and media programme".
