Overview of position
Strengthening Somalia Institutions for Public Works (SSIPWP) project is a key initiative in developing the capacity of the Ministry of Public Works, Reconstruction and Housing, the State level Ministries and Banadir Regional Administration (BRA) to enable them independently plan, design, manage and oversee infrastructure and public works projects. Gender mainstreaming in infrastructure projects is one of the key objectives of the SSIPWP project. Improving the lives and opportunities for women and girls is an explicated goal for the project. The SSIPWP envisioned that women and girls must be considered as equal beneficiaries of the project activities. Often infrastructure projects assume that women will benefit equally as men without due acknowledgement of full range of social and economic conditions and needs between men and women.
