Awareness and understanding of Philippine commitments under CEDAW strengthened and deepened among key duty bearer institutions with strategic role to provide policy oversight, deliver justice, and adopt and amend laws (executive, judicial and legislative branches).
Capacity to use CEDAW as standard and basis for formulating and reviewing national laws and policies strengthened.
