Strengthening Participatory Democracy in Turkey: The second phase of the Monitoring Gender Equality Project has started to be implemented by the Gender Equality Monitoring Association (CEID) as of January 2, 2020. The project, whose short name is CEIDizler, is designed to increase the capacity and awareness of non-governmental organizations focusing on gender equality based on indicators; to ensure that organizations carrying out rights-based monitoring include a gender equality perspective in their monitoring activities; to support local governments to present their policy-making, implementation and monitoring processes with a gender equality perspective and to encourage the adoption of the indicator-based gender equality monitoring approach by civil organizations, local governments, and the public to achieve gender equality in all areas.
One pillar of this project is the CEIDizler Grant Program. With this grant program, CEID will provide financial support to increase and develop the activities of non-governmental organizations working on rights-based gender equality in the field of indicator-based monitoring to achieve more gender equality and participatory democracy in Turkey. The program aims to support the work of the project target groups to monitor gender equality with indicators and to strengthen their advocacy activities in this area.
Within the scope of the CEIDizler Project financed by the European Union, applications for the CEIDizler Grant Program have started, which aims to develop capacity, cooperation, advocacy, tools, and mechanisms for Indicator-Based Monitoring of Gender Equality.
Financial support will be provided to projects on Indicator-Based Monitoring of Gender Equality through the CEIDizler Grant Program.
