Women as Agents of Change Action Network on Forced Displacement
Members and allies
The Action Network currently has 17 members from more than ten countries, including Afghanistan, Georgia, Syria, Yemen, Uganda, Sudan, Honduras and the Philippines. Many of them have experienced situations of displacement themselves. Numerous partners from politics, the private sector and civil society support the Network.
Implementation of local projects
The Action Network wants to support local projects. To that end, the BMZ works together with the United Nations Women's Peace and Humanitarian Fund (External link) (WPHF). Via WPHF, it is possible to finance projects to foster the political and economic empowerment of women in situations of displacement.
The members of the Network have decided jointly to make Yemen, Colombia and Nigeria pilot countries for the first projects.
