Training «Gender Equality at Local Level»

The Forum of Women’s NGOs of Kyrgyzstan gathers representatives of local governments, public women’s organizations, law enforcement agencies and other stakeholders to participate in the training on “Gender Equality at the local level” in the Osh region on July 1-2, 2019 in the city of Osh.

 The training has several goals. One of the goals is to increase the capacity of local authorities, public women’s organizations and other stakeholders in the field of gender equality and women’s rights within the framework of goal No. 5 of the Sustainable Development Goals. The next goal is to increase the capacity of stakeholders to develop localized indicators in the field of gender equality. And another goal is to develop a mechanism for transferring gender needs within the framework of Goal 5 of the SDGs from local authorities for further implementation in the national SDG implementation process.

 

Why is training relevant?

Currently, the reasons for insufficient implementation of policies and legislation in the field of promoting gender equality at the local level are: insufficient funding, poor coordination, poor awareness and responsibility of local authorities in the field of gender equality and the protection of women’s rights, lack of partnership with civil society organizations and other stakeholders by the parties.

In this regard, it is necessary to increase the capacity of representatives of local governments and other stakeholders in the field of gender equality with a focus on Goal 5 of the SDGs, the definition of localized indicators for Goal 5, performance indicators. Strengthening the responsibility of local keneshes for making appropriate decisions to integrate the objectives of the national strategy and the Plan for achieving gender equality in local development plans will ensure the joint involvement of local authorities, women, women’s organizations, civil society organizations in decision-making processes in gender equality, women’s rights and expansion opportunities for women at the local level.

 

Our expectations

We expect training participants to develop gender-sensitive indicators and recommendations based on and related to the National Action Plan for Gender Equality for 2018–2020, consider financing issues and accountability mechanisms based on gender assessment for local sustainable development plans. It is planned to begin discussions on the process of incorporating gender-sensitive recommendations, proposals, indicators, accountability and financing mechanisms based on gender assessment in local sustainable development plans. In addition, it is expected that the training participants will develop a mechanism for transferring gender needs within the framework of Goal 5 of the SDGs from local authorities for further implementation in the national SDG implementation process. As a result, together and in partnership we can
organize the process of implementing gender-sensitive policies and effective local adaptation, implementation, review and monitoring of the achievement of global Sustainable Development Goals until 2030 in the Kyrgyz Republic in accordance with Goal 5 of the SDGs.

Within project «Advancement of multistakeholders partnership for gender equality and women’s rights» supported by CPDE Forum WNGO developed and published of informational brochure on the «Multilateral partnership for the implementation of national commitments in the field of women’s rights and gender equality». The brochure is available in two languages: Russian>>> and English>>>

Round table «Partnership at local level»

At present, Kyrgyzstan is facing challenges in the field of adaptation, implementation and monitoring of the SDGs, in particular Goal No. 5 of the global Sustainable Development Agenda 2030 “Ensuring gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls” at the national, regional and local levels between the main engines of sustainable development. Effective implementation of the SDGs for women and girls necessitates the creation and strengthening of an enabling environment for achieving gender equality.

In the course of its activities, the Forum of Women’s NGOs in Kyrgyzstan revealed that, at the moment, local plans and strategies do not include gender equality as a full-fledged component of sustainable development. The rights and needs of rural women are not sufficiently taken into account or ignored in local legislation, budgets and investment strategies at the local level.
Local governments do not practice the needs analysis in general and gender in particular. There is no sustained cooperation between local governments (LSGB) and women’s organizations on issues of achieving gender equality and women’s rights. At the same time, cooperation between different development partners is one of the key ways to solve the problem. The experience of the previous decades shows the importance of the timely creation of an accountability mechanism with the effective institutionalization of the participation of civil society and, especially, women’s organizations in all processes of sustainable development. The partnership will set a precedent for other sectors and subsequent stages of sustainable development in the country.

The Forum of Women’s NGOs in Kyrgyzstan, together with women’s organizations, continued to engage local authorities, women, women’s organizations, civil society organizations in decision-making processes in the field of gender equality, women’s rights and women’s empowerment at the local level.

Within the project “Partnership: from global to local,” which is implemented under the Partnership for Innovation — P4I program with the support of USAID, women’s organizations are initiating the creation of local territorial groups as a mechanism for promoting gender policy. The project focuses on improving the situation of rural women through increasing the participation of rural women, women’s organizations in decision-making processes in the field of gender equality at the local level in the Karasu district of Osh oblast, Nookat district of Osh oblast, Issyk-Ata district of Chui oblast and Alamedin district of Chui oblast.

The firsm meeting are planning to hold in April- round tables and trainings in 2 oblasts.

What is the reality of shrinking space for civil society participation in the development process, including the implementation of Agenda 2030?”. In her speech, Nurgul Djanaeva highlighted the current context and challenges that CSO face now. Currently there are alarming processes of shrinking space for CSOs in the region as well at the global level. Enabling environment for CSOs is under risk and closing civic space is a reality with threats to and arrests of civil society activists.  She attracted attention to the ongoing CPDE process of data collection on the CSO enabling environment within the 3rd Round Monitoring of the GPEDC. She reminded that CSO enabling environment consists of several dimensions including legal, regulatory and political environment, space for CSOs dialogue on national development policies, development partner support for CSO enabling environment.

DEPUTY OF LOCAL KENESH

This article discusses a woman from the village of Maevka, Alamedin district, Chui oblast.

Her name is Lobarkhon Dzhuraeva. She immediately attracts attention to herself — bright, stately, high. We started the conversation with the theme of its current deputieship in Ayilnogo Kenesh, the village of Maevka, Alamedin district, Chui oblast. She decided to become a deputy herself. Lobarkhon says she always had an active citizenship. This character trait does not leave her indifferent to the problems of people who turn to her and to those who need, but cannot, for a variety of reasons, tell themselves about their problems.

Lobarkhon, many people know her as Larisa, opened a grocery store in the very center of the village several years ago. In the past, hard work remained on the Dordoi market. She sold goods that she herself brought from abroad. Having opened the store, Larisa found herself in the very epicenter of news and problems of people who started to buy products, and just go into the store to talk with her. She found out and was surprised that literally in the next street there wasn’t, and there wasn’t, never tap water. People carry water all their lives with buckets, suffer, complain to different instances, but the problem has not been solved for decades.
