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 will use its triple mandate normative, coordination and operational to contribute to the overall implementation of international and national frameworks such as SDG, CEDAW, Beijing Platform, Resolution 1325 and at the national level CREDD and UNSDCF.
