Women’s Rights and Gender Equality

Women speak out about gender-based violence in their communities. Photo credit: ASTHA Women’s Rights and Gender Equality Theme Result Of Bangladesh Theme | Results report year 2021 Bangladesh has an alarming level of child rape, sexual assaults and violence against women. COVID-19 has led to a further deterioration in the safety of women and girls in the country. Our efforts therefore focus on combating gender-based violence and on improving women’s position on the labour market. ASTHA: Strengthening Access to Multi-sectoral Public Services for Survivors of Gender-based Violence (GBV) in Bangladesh Highlighted activity UNFPA implemented the ASTHA project (2017-2021) in collaboration with five local NGOs. ASTHA’s efforts to prevent gender-based violence included raising awareness of gender equality, women's rights and gender-based violence in local communities. The project also supported victims of gender-based violence by providing them with protection and offering them legal, health and psychosocial support. The project contributes to improved collaboration and coordination between the various care providers. It also helps to lower the threshold for victims to seek help.

Benin water

Photo credit: Photo taken during a field visit Water Theme Result Of Benin Theme | Results report year 2021 The Netherlands works to give people access to safe drinking water and sanitation. It also provides information on hygiene and fosters sustainable integrated water management. Reorganisations in the programme have caused delays, though they ensure that the programme is completed on time in 2022. Autonomous water point in the village of Bahounkpo (N’Dali municipality) Highlighted activity This water point is part of a series of projects in the north of the country. It provides more than 3,000 people with access to clean drinking water, pumped up using electricity from solar panels. The water is stored in a water tower so it is always available and much closer to hand. This benefits women and girls in particular, as they have responsibility for obtaining water. Water-borne diseases have declined, and the water point has also helped the local market develop. More information on this activity Autonomous water point in Bahounkpo in N’Dali municipality Open data of this project Results Benin did not achieve its ambition of providing all inhabitants with access to safe drinking water by the end of 2021. It has, however, made some impressive improvements. Thanks to a fivefold increase in investments, in urban regions 75% of the population has access to safe drinking water supplies (up from 55% in 2016). The figure in rural areas is 70% (42% in 2016). Dutch support made a major contribution to these successes, with the large-scale OmiDelta programme playing a key role. OmiDelta helps provide sustainable water supplies and sanitation, a safe urban delta, and climate resilience thanks to a combination of investments in sustainable infrastructure and integrated water management.   OmiDelta has separate budgets for government programmes and NGOs, allowing all partners to focus on their areas of expertise. Government bodies are responsible for large-scale water supplies. NGOs focus on small-scale rural facilities. The programme also has links with other programmes run by Invest International (the Lac Nokoué-project), UNICEF and WSSCC, IUCN and NCEA.  The water programme provides better access to drinking water to 500,000 people. Another 250,000 people benefit from better sanitation. 750,000 people no longer live in an environment where  people defecate in the open air. 600,000 people are benefiting from better water management, including flood protection in deltas. The programme experienced delays in 2018 and 2019 as a result of government reforms and the establishment of new implementing bodies. The COVID-19 pandemic and uncertainty about funding also delayed implementation. Most results will become apparent in the next results report.   The government organisations responsible for water launched major infrastructural projects in 2020. Some of the results will be apparent in the report on 2021, and others in the report on 2022. Together, the NGOs partially achieved their envisaged results. For instance, 62,000 people gained access to clean water (32,000 planned). The number of people who gained access to sanitation was behind schedule, at 4,577. The organisations provided 414,000 people with protection from flooding.    Corresponding Country Benin All Theme Results Of Country Water Food and Nutrition Security SRHR List of indicators Download PDF List of indicators Read moreAboutBenin water »

Benin food security

Farmers learning about agricultural methods on a farm in the village of Towé in Pobè municipality (ACMA project) Photo credit: Photo: IFDC Food and Nutrition Security Theme Result Of Benin Theme | Results report year 2021 The Dutch food security programme ensures sustainable improvements in the productivity and income of smallholders. It focuses mainly on young people and women. We also work to enhance food security and tackle malnutrition, through school lunches, for example. In the year under review we exceeded our targets by a large margin. ACMA II Highlighted activity The project Approche Communale pour le Marché Agricole au Bénin is helping to improve food and nutritional security among the rural population of Benin. The goal is to increase the income of local producers by improving productivity, increasing trade and removing barriers to trade with Nigeria. The project enhances access to seed, fertiliser and financing, innovations, markets, professionalisation, agricultural loans and IT solutions. More information on this activity More information on ACMA II in Benin Open data of this project Results Agriculture is the main source of income for over 70% of the population of Benin. The land is fertile and the climate good, but production methods are antiquated, so yields remain low. 10% of the population are not guaranteed an adequate diet, and one in three children are malnourished. The  food security programme helps smallholders, particularly young people and women, improve their productivity and income. The Netherlands is investing in access to farmland, seed and fertiliser, financing and modern production methods. We are strengthening farmers’ market position by promoting collaboration and offering training and IT solutions. We also promote food diversity and more environmentally-friendly land use.   In 2020 83,000 people, mainly children, gained access to a varied and healthy diet with Dutch support. We achieved this through school lunches, using local producers to supply them. We also provided targeted help for farmers to improve their income. They were given information and support to grow products of high nutritional value, such as soya beans, nuts and vegetables.   Dutch-funded projects helped small and medium-sized enterprises to develop, through training, information about technological innovations and assistance with obtaining seed, fertilisers and loans. These projects also helped to strengthen markets with investments in value chains and IT solutions for better information exchange. The projects helped 68,000 producers, mainly young people and women, to increase their production, turnover and income. Farmers are using 55,000 hectares of land more sustainably, thanks to the use of organic materials rather than artificial fertiliser. The project with the land registry recorded and secured the land rights of almost 40,000 individuals in the year under review. By focusing more on young people in the north of the country, the Netherlands is helping to prevent radicalisation and violent extremism in Benin. The embassy also supported an extensive study of food and nutritional security in the country.       Corresponding Country Benin All Theme Results Of Country Water Food and Nutrition Security SRHR List of indicators Download PDF List of indicators Read moreAboutBenin food security »

Benin SRHR

SRHR Project visit at Zangnanado (Consortium/ABPF) Photo credit: Photo: ABMS SRHR Theme Result Of Benin Theme | Results report year 2021 The Netherlands supports the policy of improving maternal health, reducing child mortality and teenage pregnancy, and increasing use of contraceptives. The Netherlands also tackles violence against children, forced child marriage, female genital mutilation and violence and discrimination against LGBTI people. We have achieved most of the envisaged results. Promotion de la Santé et des Droits Sexuels et Reproductifs (PSDSR) au Bénin Highlighted activity The project Promotion de la Santé et des Droits Sexuels et Reproductifs (PSDSR) provides information and SRHR services to young people aged 10 to 24, at school and in other settings. The project sets up school clubs and out-of-school clubs, where issues like sexuality, family planning, leadership and self-respect are discussed. It also uses mobile and other clinics that offer SRHR services. It is run by three NGOs – CARE, ABMS and ABPF – and covers 12 health zones and 29 municipalities. More information on this activity More information on this project Sexuality education at a school in Porto-Novo in southern Benin Results Benin is one of the more progressive countries in the West Africa region when it comes to women’s rights and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR). Nevertheless, the country still has a long way to go to achieve the SRHR SDGs. A woman in Benin has almost five children on average. More than eight in 100 women are under the age of 20 when they give birth. Almost 400 in every 100,000 births end in the death of the mother.   Promoting women’s own choices , as well as the independence and autonomy of young people, is key to the Dutch approach to SRHR. The Netherlands pursues this by: 1) promoting sexuality education; 2) improving access to and use of family planning and other SRHR services for young people; and 3) promoting respect for the sexual and reproductive rights of all individuals, irrespective of their sexual orientation. The Netherlands also promotes respect for women’s rights and the protection of children, with a focus on preventing child marriage, child labour and gender-related violence. In 2020 the Netherlands started funding a project designed to ensure more girls attend secondary school, particularly in the north of Benin. The project encourages them to  participate in education by providing financial support (cash transfers), help with managing menstrual hygiene, and safe, separate toilets at school. The Netherlands works with government ministries, UN organisations, NGOs, youth organisations and religious and traditional leaders.   The various SRHR projects provided information to almost 170,000 young people in schools and 250,000 in other settings. Thanks to these projects, there are now 144,000 new users of family planning methods.      Corresponding Country Benin All Theme Results Of Country Water Food and Nutrition Security SRHR List of indicators Download PDF List of indicators Read moreAboutBenin SRHR »
