Background

UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security. Placing women's rights at the center of all its efforts, the UN Women leads and coordinates the United Nations system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world. 

UN Women’s presence in the Republic of Moldova has evolved from being a project-based office in 2007 to a Country Office with fully delegated authority as of 2015. The work of UN Women in Moldova is guided by its new Country Strategic Note for 2018-2022, aligned with the Republic of Moldova–United Nations Partnership Framework for Sustainable Development 2018–2022the Global Strategic Plan of UN Women for 2018-2021, the National Strategy on Gender Equality for 2017-2021 (NSGE), and aims to contribute to the gender-responsive implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The UN Women Strategy for Moldova 2018-2022 focuses on three main areas: 1/strengthening women’s participation in politics and decision making, 2/economic empowerment of women and 3/ending violence against women and girls. To achieve progress under these areas, UN Women works with variety of national and international partners and as part of different national and regional initiatives.

In 2018 UN Women in collaboration with Academy of Public Administration (APA) developed a Gender Equality Course for Public Servants for all levels and regions of the country. The Gender Equality Course for Public Servants contributes to gender mainstreaming into all work of the Government of Moldova at central and local levels. 

In addition, APA created a core group of 8 APA Gender Equality Trainers, designated by APA and relevant public institutions, who were capacitated and certified by APA to deliver the Gender Equality Course for Public Servants.

The Gender Equality Course for Public Servants introduced both a conceptual and practical tool to start and continue gender mainstreaming into strategic and daily work of civil servants responsible for making evidence-based policy and budget decisions to ensure equality between men and women at all levels, areas and fields of activity.

E-learning is still a novelty in the Project Countries that UN Women agreed to support the main goal of this support is to create a massive number of public administration officials/public servants which understand and utilize the main concepts on GE and GRB. This is very much linked with the sustainability of interventions for the future. These modules will be owned by the governments and will be used in the future as well.

In 2018, representatives from APA participated within a workshop on Gender and Gender Responsive Budgeting E-learning Module organized in Tirana, Albania within the project “Promoting Gender Responsive Policies in South East Europe” (2017-2018)”.  The main objective of the event was to reflect on the best practices of implementation of the GRB e-learning module. The event seeks to exchange views and foster discussion between partners. On the margins of this event, public officials in charge of the development of the modules from participating countries met and discussed on best practices on e-learning opportunities from each country.
