WEE-Hewlett_Cameroon For macro-level gender-responsive policy solutions that can promote women’s economic empowerment in Cameroon

Abstract

- In Cameroon, the team will focus on two types of policies: one designed to support schooling for young girls, particularly through vocational training focused on skills that are considered “in demand” in the labour market, and another for the protection of women entrepreneurs, both in the formal and informal sector. The team has already engaged in consultations and plans to work closely with the Women’s Entrepreneurship Commission (C-EF) of the Inter-employer Group of Cameroon (GICAM) and the Ministry of Labour and Security. Additionally, the team aims to collaborate with other government institutions (including the Ministry of Employment and Vocational Training; Ministry for the Advancement of Women and the Family; and Ministry of Economy and Regional Planning) and other WEE advocates/organizations (including UN WOMEN, Entrepreneurship Development Educational Network in Africa (EDEN AFRICA); NGO FAVIDA; and Horizons Femmes Cameroun)
