Organisation Internationale Pour Les Pays Les Moins Avancés (OIPMA)
The International Organization for the Least Developed Countries (IOLDCs)


This is a globally accepted strategy for promoting gender equality. Mainstreaming is not an end in itself but a strategy, an approach, a means to achieve the goal of gender equality. IOLDCs believes that gender perspectives must be central to all activities - policy development, research, advocacy/ dialogue, legislation, resource allocation, and planning, implementation and monitoring of programmes and projects. In particular, IOLDCs advocates the respect of girls and women in crisis-affected areas where their voices are unheard in decision-making processes; they suffer from gender-based violence; sexual abuses; rapes and other activities against their dignity, integrity, health and life.
