Support to civic education for the 2016-2018 electoral cycle

Support to civic education for the 2016-2018 electoral cycle

The project aims to strengthen the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) capacity to perform its constitutional mandate in respect of the 2016 general elections, and beyond. The NCCE’s operational capacity to perform its mandate in a coordinated manner was increased together with election management ‘dialogue with media and political parties.

The NCCE’s capacity to create voter awareness with specific focus on women and disadvantaged groups was enhanced, leading to an increase in both accountability and credibility of the electoral process. Women’'s participation in the general (presidential parliamentary) elections was greater both as candidates and voters.
