Granting of an extension to ensure continuity into the next electoral cycle and to build on the structures and partnerships established up in the first phase, particularly including WF4D. It is essential to ensure the continuation of the current project while an assessment is conducted, and a new Project Document written and approved. It is important that momentum is not lost over the next year to ensure a smooth transition to a new project with UNDP at the helm and to ensure support to the upcoming electoral process and to build upon the successes and key structures already established under the Project Wumen in Elections.


Undertaking of key lessons learned exercises to feed into a new project.


Further support to female candidates by ensuring gender sensitive reporting and tracking of hate speech.


Consideration for a new project should revolve around the electoral cycle including training for aspiring and current MPs


Consideration should be given to expand the outreach to key beneficiaries such as civil society, ethnic leaders, religious leaders and a more effective campaign with regards to media.


Consideration should be given to further promotion of the key products developed under the Project, utilization thereof to develop a curriculum for potential female candidates (brochure on strategic approach to women candidate’s success in election campaigns)


IT literacy Education


Mapping of support to women’s leadership and empowerment of all other stakeholders both national and international


Conduct an analysis why women´s election was significantly high in LGs while in others it decreased substantially
