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.
Sudan has entered an era of democratic transition after a 30-year undemocratic rule. The current process of the transition is challenging due to the dire socio-economic and political situations the country is passing through. The deteriorated economic situations have negatively reflected in a massive collapse of the local currency, deteriorated standard of living and lack of security. The process of the institutional reform, mainly reforming public sectors institutions to deliver timely and efficient public services has been slowed down by the political fragility, inadequate resources, and delay in the signing of the peace agreement. Women are still bearing the brunt of the economic deterioration. Women’ engagement in agriculture and in the informal sector affect their ability to afford basic family needs. Moreover, women access to microfinance institutions to enhance their economic opportunities is affected by cultural barriers and by lack of knowledge to access microfinance institutions. The historical social norms and stereotypes imposed on women have worsened the unequal power structure and often deter women’s ability to make decision and to negotiate their rights.
In line with the County priorities, UN Women works with different sectors to jointly promote women’s economic empowerment and bring the transitional government to account for gender at macro, meso and micro economic level in the process of the economic reform.
In this regard, and under the European Union Emergency Trust Fund for stability and addressing root causes of irregular migration and displaced persons in Africa (EUTF) to support the democratic transition in Sudan, UN Women in partnership with the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation (AICS are undertaking three- years project titled Women’s Empowerment for resilience, Inclusion, Sustainability and Environment in Eastern States. The project aims to create a conducive environment for the economic empowerment of women living in the most vulnerable situations in Khartoum, Kassala, Gedaref and Red Sea states. Specifically, the project objectives focus on improving access of young women and men, living in vulnerable situations, to a more inclusive market system, strengthen the capacity of institutions at Federal and State levels to enhance GEWE and reflect on the social norms and attitudes towards GEWE.
