Gender equality & non-discrimination
Women and men were represented in the activities conducted (training and dialogue forums) during May 2018-May 2019. During the same period, all assessments conducted (on pension, social security inspection and value-chain analysis) carefully looked at the situation of men and women and specific recommendations formulated. The assessment of the pension system in particular include a recommendation to introduce a universal social pension scheme that will guarantee at least a basic income security for all in old age.
