Since 2016, the OSCE POiD has worked in promotion of women’s political and public participation by strengthening capacities of representatives of seven registered political parties, the Parliament of Tajikistan, youth and civil society. More specifically, in 2017 the project established a youth network “Gender Champions”, which is comprised of young active people who have previously participated in various OSCE POiD capacity-building events and shown their interest in promoting gender equality. As of 2019, the network grew to include over 70 young people representing all regions of Tajikistan. They have taken the initiative to organize their own trainings in regions and in city centres, as well as making presentations about gender equality and engaging in debates and discussions with their peers.
Additionally, the WPP project also works with female Members of the Parliament of Tajikistan (MPs) in increasing their knowledge on gender quota. In 2017, OSCE POiD established “Women’s Alliance” in the Parliament of Tajikistan as main lobbying body for gender quotas to guarantee increased representation for women in the executive structure of all branches of power. More so, OSCE POiD has supported seven registered political parties in developing annual Gender Action Plans (GAPs). Building on experience, in 2019, the POiD supported seven registered political parties in the development of gender strategies for each political party.
In 2020, the OSCE POiD will continue its co-operation with youth, through targeted capacity-building activities, which include trainings, roundtables and TOTs.
