The objective of the project is to contribute to the sustainable economic and social development of Seychelles, by enhancing the capacity of state and non-state actors and developing sensitization to human rights issues. This will entail the capacity building of state actors in gender responsive policy formulation, development and implementation of a Human Resources Action Plan, and of NGOs in project management to improve service delivery, and strengthening the capacity of police officers in respecting and adopting human rights practices, sensitising the judiciary, media and civil society on gender and human rights issues.
