Project Summary

The project detailed below responds to the challenges identified in the Renewed APEC Agenda for Structural Reform (RAASR). The objective is to promote indigenous women´s participation in  APEC economies, diminishing gender gaps in the workforce and collaborate with a deeper participation in those markets by all segments of the population that haven’t been completely active in the past.

Objective: The project involves a one-day Seminar in Santiago, where experts from the public and private sector from different APEC economies will present the challenges existing in the incorporation of indigenous women in local economies. After this, indigenous entrepreneurs will discuss their own experiences.

Planning:

- Create a list of key actors on the topic. (June 2019)

- Invite the speakers and attendants to the main activity. (August 2019)

- Implement the seminar. (November 2019)

- Evaluate the activity. (December 2019)

- Create the document that will resume the experience, share the knowledge arising from the seminar and help to promote the topic of indigenous women´s participation in APEC economies.

Relevance

Relevance – Region: Both APEC Women and the Economy Dashboard 2017 and UN WOMEN 2015-2016, noticed a persistent gap in the participation of women in the economy in the APEC region. The project seeks to approach this diagnosis from the subsector of indigenous women, where it is estimated that these gaps are even more pronounced.

The objective and the products of this project would benefit both, the APEC member economy and this subsector, since indigenous people are one of the most vulnerable groups due to their high-levels of rurality, lack of education and poverty rates. Likewise, this project will allow indigenous women to have greater visibility within the PPWE forum of APEC.

Relevance – Eligibility and Fund Priorities: This initiative contributes to the funding prioritiy of the APEC General Project Account which is strengthening inclusive growth through structural reform and increased opportunities for women and MSMEs.

The project aims to introduce the topic of the inclusion of indigenous women in the economy, sharing successful experiences and promoting cooperation between economies that have significant percentages of indigenous population, and that also seek to include women in the economy. 

Relevance – Capacity Building: The project promotes the sharing of knowledge and proposals that may be applied in training programs, in this case, to vulnerable sectors such as indigenous women in APEC economies. The development of this project has as its main and final product the development of good practices within APEC member economies for the economic autonomy of indigenous women.

Objectives

1)  Create an APEC community interested in this subject.

2)  Collect and concentrate the diverse experiences in this type of cases and have documents to share within the APEC economies.

3)  Improve abilities of the State, especially in organizations involved in the design of public policies whose target groups are the indigenous population, women and vulnerable groups.

4)  Document the results of the seminar and formulate a training model for indigenous women, with the purpose of achieving the goals of promoting sustainable, innovative and inclusive growth.

Alignment

Alignment – APEC: The project is aligned with the Bogor Goals and is related to the guidelines of the PPWE forum about the promotion of women´s participation in the economy. Regarding the Renewed APEC Agenda for Structural Reform (RAASR) 2016-2020, the project is directly related to the pillar promoting a deeper participation in those markets by all segments of society, including MSMEs and women. It should also be noted that this project addresses the APEC 2016 Capacity Building Policy. 

Alignment – Forum: The Economic Committee of APEC works to eliminate structural obstacles and also regulatory barriers that inhibit trade and investment, promoting structural reform within the APEC economies.

The RAASR was approved in 2015, and one of the pillars of it is to promote a deeper participation in the markets of all segments of society, including MSMEs and women. For these reasons, the project is intimately related to all by APEC.

Beneficiaries: The Seminar will include high level officials from the APEC economies to promote the conclusions of the activity and by this, advance in reducing the participation gap of indigenous women in the economy. It also considers the participation of experts and policy makers in the subject, and analysts on gender issues, whose contributions will be considered in the preparation of the training proposal for indigenous women of APEC economies.

Representatives of government agencies and workers from companies with experience with indigenous communities will also be summoned, as well as indigenous women with experience in commercial ventures. These women will be those who will replicate part of the experiences shared in the panel, taking to their communities what they learned in the Seminar. 

Evaluation: In the short term, the results of the project will be measured with the achievement of the first objective, which is the existence of a new community within APEC that is interested and active in this area.

In the medium term, the results of the seminar-workshop can be measured through a survey of the different participants of the seminar, regarding new collaborative ties that may have occurred in the development of the seminar-workshop.

Likewise, a systematization of the opinions of the indigenous participants will be carried out, in order to gather the main aspects that the methodological training proposal should have. 

Linkages: The project is directly related to the Renewed APEC Agenda for Structural Reform (RAASR), as well as to the MSMEs pillar and Women's Development, which has boosted the recent activities of the Economic Committee (EC). Likewise, this project addresses the Capacity Building Policy of APEC 2016, which includes more than one theme of the APEC proposals.
