The Agency for Gender Equality (AGE), based on Article 11 of the Law on Gender Equality has been obliged to initiate the drafting of the Kosovo Gender Equality Program (KPGE) as a strategic document of the Government of Kosovo, which defines the main goals, measures and actors who are responsible for achieving gender equality in all areas of social, economic, political, educational, health and cultural life for women and men in Kosovo in 2017-2021.
By the decision of the Prime Minister of the Republic of Kosovo, Isa Mustafa on December 23rd, 2016, the central team for drafting the Kosovo Program for Gender Equality 2017-2021 and the thematic working subgroups were appointed (Decision No. 069/2016).
The working group for the drafting of this document, part of which was also the Kosovo Women’s Network (KWN), for six consecutive days has developed a workshop discussing the collection, analysis and provision of necessary information during and until the end of the process of finalizing the Kosovo Program on Gender Equality and the Action Plan. The document is divided into three pillars: economic empowerment and social welfare; human development; decision-making and representation, Women, Peace and Security. The workshop was supported by SIDA.
