UN Women leads and coordinates United Nations system efforts to ensure that the commitments to gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action in humanitarian response plans. As the war crisis in Ukraine continues and its impact on neighboring countries and host communities deepens, there is an increasing recognition among all the key actors that the development and humanitarian challenges arising from the crisis must be met with accelerated action and enhanced capacity. In this respect, UN Women Moldova Country Office is contributing to the United Nations processes to support the efforts of the Government of Moldova, I/NGOs, and UN Agencies on the humanitarian response to the refugee crisis and its impact on the host communities in Moldova.
As part of the country and regional response to the Ukraine crisis, UN Women Moldova CO repurposed and reprogrammed existing funds that helped swiftly respond to the rapidly evolving needs of civil society organizations focused on women’s rights and services.
