A mission of the ILS LEDA Executive Director, Vincenzo Milio, was carried out in the framework of the project ISUDWOG (Inclusive and Sustainable Development for Women and Girls), funded by the European Commission, from 12 to 18 of June, with the aim of following up crucial project activities, such as:

According to the Project objectives, the ASIDO, the Alliance for Sustainable and Inclusive Development of Osmanabad, is a partnership mechanism between CSOs and the other local public and private actors aimed at promoting inclusive, gender-oriented, and sustainable development of the district, whereas the DSS is a system that integrates and coordinates the available services, facilitating access to women and girls, trough realising cost economies, and proximity.

The mission was carried out through meetings with women producers, women mentors, service providers, local enterprises and local authorities.
