In 2020, the cooperation project between the Diputació de Barcelona, together with its municipalities in the province of Barcelona, and IMADEL, and municipalities in the Marrakesh-Safi region won the 1st prize of the PLATFORMAwards.
Extended to 28 Spanish and Moroccan municipalities in a second phase, the project aims to extend its scope of action to the whole of Morocco, focusing on mainstreaming gender equality in public policies and promoting the participation of women in decision spaces.
