TDEA implemented the Women’s NIC and Voter Registration Campaign (WNVRC) through the support of UNDP’s Strengthening Electoral and Legislative Processes (SELP) project in Pakistan. WNVRC is a joint campaign of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) and National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) to bridge the gender gap on electoral rolls by registering women of eligible ages.
Implemented across Pakistan in three phases, SELP yielded significant results by identifying more than 1.8 million unregistered women in more than 27,000 census blocks across the country and subsequently facilitated more than 760,000 women in acquiring NICs. Overall, the WNVRC had successfully contributed to facilitating the registration of more than 9.8 million women since 2017.
