Yasmin Lakmad is Project Manager at Expertise France. Expertise France is the French public agency for international technical assistance. It aims at contributing to sustainable development based on solidarity and inclusiveness, mainly through enhancing the quality of public policies within the partner countries.
Since its creation in 2015, Expertise France places Gender Equality at the core of its international cooperation projects. By promoting Gender equality in all our cooperation projects, we believe that we contribute to the sustainable development of our partner countries, tackling the structural causes of poverty and political instability.
In that context, Expertise France is implementing the Gender area of a European Program with 18 countries of Latin America, named EUROsociAL +, which final goal is to increase social cohesion in the region (2016 - 2021, 32 million € - 8M€ for Gender area).
This programme, implemented by a European Consortium (Spain, France and Italy), aims at contributing to significant changes in Gender public policies through peer-to-peer learning and experience exchanges between counterparts.
