About Us

Welcome to the Women Economic Empowerment Portal!

This Portal was created by the Collective for Research and Training on Development - Action (CRTD.A) and is devoted to the creation, harvesting, sharing and dissemination of resources, information, analysis, materials and links related to women’s economic rights, participation and empowerment. The information in this Portal is available in both Arabic and English.

The Portal specializes in women’s economic rights and entitlements and women’s economic participation.  It is based on a conceptual understanding of women’s economic empowerment as the right to have voice, the right to participate, the right to organize, the right to decide and the right to be recognized as an economic actor and decision maker.  The definition is also based on the framing of state and other social institutions and duty bearers and as entities that are accountable to women as citizens.

CRTD.A has been engaged in monitoring, capturing and sharing knowledge on economic rights and gender equality with specific focus on Lebanon and the MENA region for quite a few years. Within this framework, CRTD.A is disseminating a number of publication and newsbriefs such as namely:
