We3A - Improving access to value chains for women entrepreneurs
This Technical Cooperation (TC) will seek to promote the growth and resilience of women-led/owned SMEs (WSMEs), with a special focus on WSMEs that are tapping into value chains. The program's specific objectives will be to improve: 1) WSMEs' access to value chains, and 2) WSMEs' access to disruptive technologies and digital financial inclusion. We3A will pay special attention to mitigating post-COVID-19 economic turbulence, both by supporting WSMEs that have been negatively impacted and by identifying solutions and new business opportunities, such as WSMEs that leverage disruptive technologies to innovate.

Microcurso: Ciberseguridad para MiPyMEs
Las amenazas cibernéticas constituyen un riesgo para la sociedad y la economía. Como tales, afectan a todos los sectores y no distinguen entre grandes, medianas o pequeñas empresas. En los últimos años, los ataques dirigidos a estos sectores económicos se han basado en tecnologías y métodos cada vez más sofisticados, por lo que el nivel de seguridad promedio de una organización pequeña generalmente resulta insuficiente frente a las amenazas cibernéticas y sus métodos de ataque. A pesar de esto, las pequeñas empresas son una parte importante de la economía y su relevancia para el bienestar económico de un país es significativa. Por ende, es necesario aumentar su robustez por medio de prácticas de ciberseguridad que permitan esbozar un nivel básico de protección.
