Call for Proposals in the field of Women’s empowerment in Lebanon

The 2021 Joint Communication on a “Renewed partnership with the Southern Neighbourhood – A new Agenda for the Mediterranean” underlines the importance to give special attention to the promotion of the role of women in society and the economy. This as part of a renewed commitment to the rule of law, human and fundamental rights, equality, democracy and good governance. In line with EU policy, the European Commission has adopted in 2022 the Action “Women Empowerment Hub in Lebanon (WE HUB)” financed under the Neighbourhood, Development and International Cooperation Instrument (NDICI-Global Europe).

25 May 2023

The action, with a budget of EUR 6,000,000, aims to promote the advancement and empowerment of women for effective realisation of gender equality. More specifically, it seeks to:

  1. Increase women’s leadership and participation in political and public sphere;
  2. Foster an enabling environment for better engagement of women in the workforce;
  3. Enhance key legislative reform and measures that protect women from all forms of violence.

Against this background, the European Union Delegation in Lebanon is launching a call for expression of interest to eligible EU Member States organisations for indirect management cooperation to implement the action “Women Empowerment Hub in Lebanon (WE Hub)”. We shall be grateful if you could forward this call to pillar assessed entities in your country working on promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment in your country.
