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 center of all its efforts, UN Women leads and coordinates United Nations system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world. It provides strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States’ priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.
UN Women Mozambique focuses its interventions on women’s economic empowerment, combating violence against women and girls, women’s participation in decision making, global norms and UN Coordination to contribute to propel the achievement of gender transformational outcomes both in the development and humanitarian contexts. The economic empowerment of women and girls is a key programmatic area of intervention but also a strategy to enable a holist and sustainable response to violence against women and girls. In the humanitarian context, UN Women promotes a triple pronged approach of economic empowerment, response to violence against women and girls and participation in decision making to enable a rights-based response and resilience recovery.
Since early 2000, Mozambique has been through humanitarian situations caused by recurrent extreme climate events such as cyclones. This situation has been for a strong nexus between development and humanitarian programming with a strong gender perspective given the negative impact on women and girls rights. The escalation of violence extremism in Cabo-Delgado since early 2021, which resulted in an estimate 800,000 Internal Displaced Persons (DTM, June 2021), further called for more comprehensive responses to the needs of women and girls to address their vulnerabilities and exclusion.
