The United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women), grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security. Placing women’s rights at the centre of all its efforts, the UN Women will lead and coordinate United Nations system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world. It will provide strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States’ priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.
The scope of work of the UN Women Deputy Representative requires experience and in-depth understanding of gender equality and women's empowerment issues, as well as management and programming expertise, to translate UN WOMEN's strategic plans into effective development initiatives and results. It also requires developing mutually reinforcing partnerships with relevant Government counterparts, UN organizations, CSOs, and with bilateral and non-traditional donors in order to promote inter-agency partnerships, support for UN reform, and mobilization of visibility and resources to advance gender equality and women's empowerment.
The overall development objective of the Sudan AWP 2012/2013 is to consolidate efforts that contribute to gender equality and women’s empowerment in Sudan. It focuses on 4 outcomes; viz. women’s political participation, peace building, ending violence against women and gender responsive budgeting and planning. Key strategies for the implementation of the programme include capacity building, advocacy, gender mainstreaming, evidence, information and data collection and the use of media to highlight and inform the general population of Sudan.
The development of the programme was guided by key principles and frameworks; at the national level, the results have been guided by Sudan’s development priorities as stated in the current IPRSP pillars 1 and 2; the Sudan National Strategic Plan goal 1 on sustaining peace, goal 3 on poverty and MDGs and goal 5 on good governance; sectoral priorities in the National Policy for Women Empowerment and Gender Equality, on goal 3 on women’s economic empowerment, on goal 4 on women’s human rights and rule of law, goal 5 on political participation and decision making, goal 6 on peace building and conflict resolution and ongoing reforms by the Government of Sudan after the end of the CPA. Results have also been identified based on the UN Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) outcomes 1, 2, 3, and 4 as well as lessons learnt from implementing the 2008-2011 CP.

In July 2010, the United Nations General Assembly created UN Women, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. The creation of UN Women came about as part of the UN reform agenda, bringing together resources and mandates for greater impact. It merges and builds on the important work of four previously distinct parts of the UN system (DAW, OSAGI, INSTRAW and UNIFEM), which focused exclusively on gender equality and women's empowerment.
