The EU4GenderEquality Reform Helpdesk in partnership with the EU Delegation to Moldova last week met with the Moldovan government to determine possible areas of cooperation. The meeting was coordinated by the Ministry of Labour and Social Protection of the Republic of Moldova, and brought together about 40 participants from state institutions and international organisations, such as UN Women and UNFPA.
The aim of the meeting was to assess the government’s needs on gender mainstreaming in on-going reforms in sectors such as public finance management, defence and security, employment, education, culture, and statistics. Following the discussion, a Joint Engagement Plan of the EU Delegation and the Government in Moldova will be developed as a framework for Helpdesk assistance for the next two years.
The EU4GenderEquality Reform Helpdesk provides demand-driven assistance for governments on gender mainstreaming in new laws, strategies, and programmes, increasing public servants’ capacity on gender analysis, gender impact assessment and gender budgeting through trainings, the development of knowledge products, and the supporting of events, seminars, and study visits.
