Élaboration d’un Profil Pays Genre en République démocratique du Congo – Democratic Republic of the Congo

Gender mainstreaming, a guiding principle for all areas of the EU intervention, helps to strengthen the “Women, Peace and Security” agenda in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Taking into account the importance of political dialogue also makes it possible to sensitize institutional partners with a gender perspective, particularly at the legislative level.

Despite the efforts that have been made, gender inequality continues to persist in all areas of development. The EU’s cooperation experience highlights various measures to promote female entrepreneurship. While taking into consideration the specificities of the DRC, the mission will particularly support those making it possible to fight against gender discrimination, to promote equal opportunities between men and women, by eliminating cultural and institutional barriers to entrepreneurship, and by implementing policies to strengthen the participation of women in the economy.

The main objective of the project was to strengthen the effectiveness of the support services for the National Authorizing Officer of the European Development Fund, in its capacity as contracting authority, in the execution and monitoring of programs and projects.

The specific objective of this project was to ensure a better understanding and knowledge of inequalities between men and women, including sexual minorities, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The knowledge produced contributed to the improvement of already existing policies and programs and facilitated the formulation of new actions in the area of gender equality.

Duration: March 2021 - June 2021

This project was financed by the EU and implemented by Luvent Consulting.
