Workshop for Elected Women Municipal Council Members and Mukhtars in South-West Lebanon

On Friday 19th of August, the United Nations Interim Forces in Lebanon (UNIFIL) South-West (SW) Civil Affairs and Military teams organized a workshop entitled “Elected Women Municipal Council Members and Mukhtars in South-West Lebanon” at the UNIFIL SW Area of Operation premises in Chamaa.


Given its support in enhancing women’s participation in political life and elections, UNDP LEAP was invited to participate in this workshop where 45 elected women from more than 21 southern villages of Tyre and Bint Jbeil cazas have attended.


The workshop aimed at providing the newly elected council members and mukhtars with technical information on the status of women in elections, and at conducting a need’s assessment evaluation to identify the areas where assistance can be provided.


UNDP LEAP team gave a presentation on the role and importance of women’s engagement in elections as part of the broader campaign of increasing women representation in elected institutions. Moreover, they presented some key results on women’s participation in the 2016 municipal elections and comparative figures of the 2016 and 2010 municipal elections. A short movie on success stories of elected women in previous rounds as a support to the awareness campaign was also streamed during the workshop.


It is worth noting that LEAP is funded by the European Union (EU).
