The UNDP Libya reported Thursday that through a series of workshops, it equipped 60 lawyers, among whom 31 were women, with the knowledge and capacities required to implement legislation and safeguard democratic processes at the national and local levels.
It reported that women’s inclusion in the process will also contribute to women’s empowerment in municipal elections and local governance.
The UNDP says it aims to empower lawyers for effective governance and is committed to fostering a strong legal community that upholds the rule of law and promotes effective local governance and elections.
This initiative, it explained, is part of UNDP’s Local Government project supported by the Government of Germany. The project focuses on supporting democratic governance and women’s empowerment in municipal elections and local governance.
