Enhancing Women's Political Participation in Africa- IDEA

Enhancing Women's Political Participation in Africa (Women in Political Participation (WPP) is a Pan-African gender project on the different facets of Women and Politics in Africa. Funded by Sida and implemented by International IDEA, it aims to advance gender equality in politics and governance, in line with the Maputo Protocol of 2003, various associated sub-regional protocols and standards, and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The project includes working with key institutions of democratic governance such as political parties, parliaments, and the media, amongst others, to build constituencies, alliances, norms, templates, and targets for reform and change towards greater women's political participation.
