    YEREVAN, March 2, 2004. (RIA Novosti) - The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the government of Armenia have launched a joint project against what is known as "glass ceiling." "The level of women's participation in decision-making in Armenia, both at the local and the national levels, must be raised," said UNDP Resident Coordinator Lise Grande.

    According to the UNDP Office in the Armenian capital of Yerevan, Ms. Grande and Minister of Labor and Social Affairs Agvan Vardanyan signed a document on the launch of this project Monday. It is entitled "Gender and Political Programs in the South Caucasus: Georgia and Armenia."

    The goal behind this project is to promote the development of gender policies in Armenia and Georgia, initiating gender dialogue and paving the way for regional cooperation in the field.

    A paper on regional gender strategies will be prepared on the basis of this newly launched project, to be implemented in three years' time.
