Strategies to support the development of inclusive electoral systems and processes: addressing good governance challenges in the Asia-Pacific region

The GPECS Asia-Pacific Regional Programme will provide electoral cycle support in line with three thematic initiatives identified as priority areas for the region in order to strengthen key electoral institutions and processes, increase opportunities for participation in elections and build regional knowledge through exchanges and capacity development. The focus of these initiatives will be on:

  • Strengthening local election processes and management;
  • Supporting activities which foster inclusive participation in politics for women as candidates, voters and electoral officials;
  • Contributing to the prevention of electoral violence and conflict.
