Strengthening Gender Strategy

Gender teams were established through an official NCDDS decision in order to better coordinate gender-related activities. The strategy was establised to facilitate SNAs to empower women, to mainstream gender into SNA policies, and to promote female employment in SNAs. In terms of employment, the target, by 2018 is to have 20% of PC decision makers (directors, heads of division) be female and to have 25% of DMK decision makers be female. The fraction of women in PC and DMK decision making positions increased from 12.96% in 2013 to 13.93% in 2014.
