Abstract

The general objectives of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs' WID Office, as of 1991, are to collect data on the condition of women in those developing countries designated by the government to be of highest priority, to use proper methodologies to pursue the objectives envisioned by law to improve the direct participation of women in development projects, to assure the effective integration of women in Italian cooperation projects and programs, and to organize study seminars and meetings to disseminate the results of initiatives taken. This paper considers the importance of collecting data on women targeted by the Italian cooperation projects, the funding of UNIFEM projects, cooperation with INSTRAW, the financing of International Labor Organization initiatives, the African Training and Research Center for Women, involvement with the United Nations University, the Centro Studi Investimenti Sociali (CENSIS), and Italian bilateral initiatives involving women. In 1991, the WID office funded several development projects targeted to women and reaffirmed its commitment to integrating women in all Italian development cooperation activities.
