UNDEF funds centre of excellence to train women in Libya

UNDEF finances a new project for a centre of excellence to mainstream Libyan women in politics and develop a nationwide civic education strategy. The centre will train women in democratic processes and institutions, gender, leadership and interpersonal skills. Once the project completes its pilot phase, it will present the Libyan government with a plan to introduce the training across the country as a whole. The project is implemented by the Libyan Women Forum, with an overall objective to help secure an influential role for women in decision-making and democratization, and enable them to play an effective role in the development of Libya. The Center will act as a meeting place and hub for training and mentoring women from the country as a whole.
