A nivel mundial, las mujeres tienen menos influencia sobre las decisiones en los ámbitos de la política, la economía, la sociedad, e incluso en el espacio doméstico. La COSUDE se implica para que las mujeres y los hombres puedan ejercer sus derechos y deberes civiles en igualdad. Además, promueve la participación política de las mujeres. 

El el punto de mira de la COSUDE

La COSUDE integra sistemáticamente la perspectiva de género en sus proyectos de desarrollo de la gobernanza. En el marco de un proceso de democratización, por ejemplo, fomenta la participación política de las mujeres tanto a nivel local como nacional.

En Afganistán, país que afronta una urbanización galopante, el índice de criminalidad ha aumentado de forma drástica. En ocho grandes ciudades del país, los ciudadanos contribuyen para evaluar los desafíos de seguridad y poner en marcha medidas colectivas. En ese proceso, que cuenta con el apoyo de la COSUDE, la participación activa de las mujeres es una prioridad.

En Benín, la COSUDE respalda a las mujeres que se presentan a un cargo político u otros órganos de decisión, tales como comités locales de salud o de agua.

La integración de los aspectos de género también es una prioridad en el desarrollo de los municipios de los Balcanes Occidentales. La COSUDE promueve con sus proyectos la participación de las mujeres en la planificación de los presupuestos y la distribución de los recursos financieros, y tiene en cuenta las necesidades y los intereses de hombres, mujeres, niños y niñas por igual. 

Contexto

Las mujeres siguen teniendo menos influencia que los hombres en las agencias gubernamentales e instituciones económicas donde se toman las decisiones importantes. Deben afrontar obstáculos tales como los prejuicios sociales persistentes, o la falta de tiempo y de formación; lo que les impide implicarse tanto como los hombres en la política.

No solo es importante la representación de las mujeres en los órganos de decisión, sino también que estos aborden la política con sensibilidad de género. La COSUDE considera necesario integrar a todos los grupos de población en los procesos de descentralización y de desarrollo de la gobernanza local. Al mismo tiempo, los efectos de las políticas y de las decisiones presupuestarias en los hombres, las mujeres, los niños o las minorías deberían ser objeto de análisis.

Towards Transparent, Inclusive and Accountable Governance in the Republic of Macedonia

15.07.2018 - 30.06.2022

The project aims at increasing gender equality in Macedonia and the quality of life for women and vulnerable groups by 1) systematically integrating a gender perspective in public policies and budgets which leads to the allocation of more funds for greater gender equality in strategies and policies; 2) empowering women and vulnerable groups to advocate for their needs in municipal planning and budgeting; and 3) supporting CSOs and Members of Parliament in overseeing the implementation of gender responsive policies and initiatives.

Since 2010, the child justice system in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) has undertaken a process of reform to which UNICEF, SDC and Sida have greatly contributed. Today the legal framework on juvenile justice is compliant with international standards, but the system for its implementation still needs to be strenghtened. This last project phase will focus on building the human capacity of justice and child protection professionals, and ensuring that adequate financial means are provided by the Government to implement this framework throughout the country. Awareness of children and their families about their rights and demanding access to justice will also be a priority.
