Project name and description:

“Technical Assistance Program in support to gender equality in access to economic opportunities”

The French Development Agency (AFD) has proposed a financial and technical support to the Government of Albania (GoA) together with the World Bank, through a Development Policy Loan (DPL) based on a Policy Matrix built upon 3 pillars:

  • Pillar 1: Promoting women’s access to assets through the recognition of ownership of immovable property;
  • Pillar 2: Levelling the playing field for women to access income-generating opportunities;
  • Pillar 3: Strengthening institutional arrangements for gender-informed policymaking.

These three pillars contribute to women’s economic empowerment (WEE) and should support the GoA in the effective implementation of the ongoing reforms, which represent a major challenge to reduce gaps between women and men in terms of equal access to immovable property, labour market participation, employment, and entrepreneurship.

The DPL is accompanied by a Technical Assistance (TA) program provided by Expertise France (EF), which aims to support the Albanian Government’s efforts to implement the Policy Matrix prior actions, and more generally to enhance gender equality and women’s participation in the economy.
