Our sound expertise combined with participatory and inclusive approach are key components behind the successful outcomes of over 20 projects we have developed.
CSO WINS – Capacity-building in the Southern Mediterranean to Open policy dialogue and monitoring for Women IN Society
The CSO WINS project aims to strengthen the capacity of civil society organizations (associations, NGOs, etc.) of the southern Mediterranean to participate in the policy dialogue on gender equality. The objective of the project is to develop the skills of civil society organizations in order to conduct effective advocacy actions in all the areas: economic, political, social or cultural.
This project aims to broaden and strengthen the abilities of civil society in southern Mediterranean countries in order to promote coordination mechanisms between these organisations and the national public authorities, as well as to foster the debate and activity at a local and regional level on the policies, institutions and mechanisms of the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership.
Most major Mediterranean issues need to be faced in a global way and can be solved exclusively through a large-scale comprehensive approach, involving all levels of government. The project aims at establishing an interregional governance model at an inter-Med level in order to develop more effective and coherent policies capable to obtain shared objectives.
The project aims at promoting new forms of non-formal education as a strategy to foster trust and strengthen intercultural dialogue internally, between members of the Anna Lindh Foundation, and externally, between Euro-Mediterranean civil society, as well as improving synergies between members of the ALF networks.
