IGUALDADER - the main aim of the Spanish project is to reduce men and women imbalance in domestic, private and public spheres, promoting demographic balance
(depopulation/overpopulation) through the application of an Egalitarian Local Development Model (ELDM) which will promote integral
measures by capacitating the key agents of each territory (politicians, social interlocutors, technical and expert staff) on gender
mainstreaming criteria. This will guarantee that good practice is included in local and sectorial policies from the very beginning.
Fire brigade From the Inside Out - the main objective of the DP
