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.
UN Women’s goal in Timor-Leste is to promote women’s human rights and gender equality as the country works towards sustaining and furthering achievements in stability and development. In this regard, its programming in the country is connected to two corporate priority areas: enhancing women’s economic empowerment (WEE), and engaging women in all aspects of peace and security processes (WPS), supported by integrated efforts to ensure gender-sensitive plans and budgets and women’s right to live free of violence. UN Women also coordinates and promotes the UN system’s joint work in advancing gender equality.

Through the Joint UN Project Together for Equality: Preventing and Responding to Gender-Based Violence in Timor-Leste (2020-2024), the United Nations has a goal for women and girls in Timor-Leste to be empowered to enjoy their right to live free of sexual harassment and other forms of violence in public and private spaces and to access quality essential services, in line with the SDGs. As part of its efforts to prevent violence before it begins, promotion of gender-equitable norms and healthy and respectful relationships will be an important part of the programme.

In line with UN Women’s global flagship, Safe Cities and Safe Public Spaces Programme, UN Women Timor-Leste Country Office has collaborated with government and non-governmental organisations since 2017 to initiate steps in supporting local stakeholders to develop a locally-owned programme that addresses sexual harassment and other forms of sexual violence against women and girls in public spaces.
