Ministry of Panchayati Raj (MoPR) is pleased to announce the successful completion of the UNDP supported project titled Capacity Building of Elected Women’s Representatives (EWR) and Functionaries of Panchayati Raj Institutions (PRIs) (2004-08).
To take forward the lessons learnt from the EWR Project, MoPR and UNDP have now initiated a new project titled Capacity Development for Local Governance (CDLG) (2009-12). To mark the formal closure of the old EWR Project and introduction of the new CDLG project, MoPR is organizing a one and a half days National Workshop on 22-23 July 2009 in Delhi.
The EWR Project was implemented in ten States in partnership with NGOs, with one NGO in each of the ten States implementing the project activities in one specific district. The key objectives of the project included: 1) to build the capacity of the elected women representatives and women’s groups to influence the local governance process, and 2) to strengthen existing networks of women in local governance and establishing new ones.
