In addition, the “Building Back Better” programme aims to support countries generate and use data on gender and resilience to crises, including the COVID-19 crisis. Furthermore, UN Women’s Regional Office also supports the enhancement of gender data through the work of other offices, including the statistical programme for the Center of Excellence on Gender Equality.

In realizing this goal, the programme partners – UN Women, the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ) and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights both the regional offices of South East Asia and the Pacific (OHCHR) – focus on achieving the following outputs: (1) Domestic laws adopted and court decisions are consistent with international human rights law and standards, including CEDAW; (2) Gender discriminatory attitudes and stereotyped behaviours towards women by formal and informal justice providers are addressed; and (3) Grassroots women’s organizations and community-based women’s organizations are empowered and well-positioned to document, monitor, liaise and facilitate interactions with formal and informal justice providers.
