UN Women is the United Nations entity dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women. A global champion for women and girls, UN Women was established to accelerate progress on meeting their needs worldwide. UN Women supports UN Member States as they set global standards for achieving gender equality, and works with governments and civil society to design laws, policies, programmes and services needed to ensure that the standards are effectively implemented and truly benefit women and girls worldwide.
At this historic juncture, UN-Women’s triple mandate, along with its global reach and deep policy and programming expertise, continues to endow the Entity with an unparalleled capacity to: (i) support Member States to strengthen global norms and standards for gender equality and women’s human rights and to create new ones to respond to new challenges; (ii) promote coordination and coherence across the UN system to enhance accountability and results for gender equality and women’s empowerment; and (iii) undertake operational activities to support Member States in translating global norms and standards into legislation, policies and strategies at the regional and country levels.
The universal adoption by UN Member States of the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015 constituted a critical milestone for efforts to advance gender equality and women’s empowerment (GEWE). The Cooperation Framework guidance places emphasis on normative commitments requiring the UN development work to be guided by the principles of GEWE, respect for human rights and focus on those furthest behind.
UNWOMEN is undertaking the preparation of its next Strategic Plan 2022-2025, which aims to guide UN-Women for the next four years – with an eye toward the 2030 deadline to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
