The project aims to address barriers to the inclusion of Mongolian women in electoral and political processes. The project aims to contribute to improving women’s representation in the national Parliament, provincial assemblies, and district councils through an inclusive and representative electoral environment where women are active, visible and viable candidates.Through gathering and sharing relevant public opinion data and awareness campaigns, the project contributes to the inclusion of women in nominated, elected and appointed positions of local and national government. It works to provide women candidates with transferable and practical skills, which in turn improve their viability as candidates and representatives. The project gives political parties opportunities to interact with and to support such viable candidates.
