Procurement number : AUC/WGDD/C/246

 

Background

Achieving gender equality and women’s empowerment is considered a critical success factor towards realizing Agenda 2063. To achieve this the Women, Gender and Development Directorate (WGDD) developed the African Union Strategy for Gender Equality & Women’s Empowerment, Its operationalization will enable the AU to use its comparative advantage of an indisputable convener, relationship builder, influencer, and knowledge of the continent to bring as many African countries as possible to levels of gender equality recorded to date in several African countries.

This strategy is transformational in its outcomes with the aim of challenging the big ticket constraints on gender equality and women’s empowerment and leap frogging the AU into seizing the new global momentum for this agenda. These principles are enshrined in Article 4L of the AU’s Constitute Act and amplified in Aspiration 6 of Agenda 2063. It will therefore be implemented by the institutions and organs of the African Union (AU) and its partners.
