CDI is supporting a series of training programs and outreach activities across the region. The programs are assisting parliaments to fulfil their legislative functions; supporting political parties to contribute effectively to democratic governance, and supporting increased political representation of women in democratic institutions. CDI is drawing upon a body of evidence regarding how democratic strengthening occurs in its focus countries to inform its program development.
