Global Project for Electoral Cycle Support Phase II
Annual Report 2015
Phase II of the Global Project for Electoral Cycle Support was launched in March 2015 as an imminent successor to the highly successful phase of GPECS I (2009-2015). GPECS I and II have been designed to respond to the overall growing demands of UNDP electoral assistance worldwide and to ensure global coherence in the delivery, as well as in the development and implementation, of UNDP electoral policy and capacity development. GPECS II assists partner countries to manage long-term, sustainable and inclusive electoral processes. The Project’s activities are clustered in three mutually reinforcing outputs on global, regional and national level, which are complemented by a fourth output, focusing on gender mainstreaming in electoral assistance and promoting the political participation of women.
