KVINFO works in direct or strategic partnership with NGOs, networks, civil society organizations, INGOs, governmental institutions, private sector companies, professional associations, trade unions and academic institutions across the MENA region and in Denmark. The partnerships are based on shared values and a common long-term objective of achieving more gender equal societies; in line with agreed international commitments on women’s rights and gender equality.
The aim of KVINFO's partnership approach is to respond as effectively as possible to the complex issue of gender equality and rights. Consequently, project implementation is most commonly led by the local partners. The local partners are most likely to have closer ties to the intended beneficiaries of the projects, and the local partners are best suited to adapt the projects to the needs and situation of the specific country.
Public debate and dialogue events on gender equality and women’s rights are jointly conducted by Danish and MENA organizations in Denmark, as well as in the MENA region in order to achieve maximum impact in both regions.
Through partnerships KVINFO enhances the synergy and outreach of projects. The partnership approach is the basis of our efforts to achieve mutual and sustainable results, to maximize resources, reduce duplication and increase ownership of the projects.
KVINFO emphasizes trust, cooperation, flexibility and accountability as enabling factors that consolidate partnerships over time. KVINFO considers mutual responsibility between partners as well as to the intended beneficiaries, citizens and donors of vital importance.
The relevance, efficiency, effectiveness and impact of our project interventions are consequently being monitored and evaluated on a regular basis.
