The SCS aims at contributing to gender equity in the Western Balkans, both through mainstreaming of gender issues and gender specific programs and projects. Funded partners should pursue gender equality in all project related activities. This aim is expected to be realized through active recruitment strategies and gender perspectives, both in the administration and implementation of projects.

This aim is expected to be realized through active recruitment strategies, both in the administration and implementation of the project, and formation of partnerships.
