GPECS: Europe and CIS Region

Promoting regional learning and exchange between UNDP country offices, EMBs and regional electoral stakeholders

By taking the electoral cycle approach as a starting point, the GPECS Regional Component for Europe and the CIS will focus on increasing the political participation of women and other marginalized groups in electoral processes, especially at the local level.  The regional component will foster regional knowledge development, exchanges and capacity of UNDP country offices, electoral institutions, and other electoral stakeholders in the region.  The regional component will be developed taking into consideration existing regional initiatives and priorities in the area of the democratic governance.
