The Inclusive and Equitable Local Economic Development Program (IELD), co-implemented by UNCDF, UNDP and UN Women from 2016 to 2020, aims to increase local public and private investments for women’s economic empowerment. The program aims to address barriers by deploying locally driven solutions that engage both the public and private sector with an emphasis on unlocking domestic capital for the economic empowerment of women. The training course Gender-responsive local economic development planning and implementation, developed as part of the IELD program, is to increase the capacity of local and regional governments for gender-equitable local economic development policies, interventions and public and private sector investments. The course focuses at public and private local investments and at local economic planning and implementation.
