On the local level the integration of gender equality is fostered through two manuals and piloted in 14 local governments in their organisational structures, human resources, budgets, politics and programmes. On the regional level, regional gender circles have been established. On the national level, the Instituto Salvadoreño para el Desarrollo de la Mujer (ISDEMU) is strenghtened to enhance the integration of gender into local government codes and policies.
