UN Women is the UN organization 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, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; fosters women’s empowerment and equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action, peace and security. UN Women also coordinates and promotes the UN system’s work in advancing gender equality, and in all deliberations and agreements linked to the 2030 Agenda. The entity works to position gender equality as fundamental to the Sustainable Development Goals, and a more inclusive world.
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. This includes efforts to ensure women’s right to live free from any form of violence, efforts to advance women’s economic empowerment and women’s leadership and participation in support of the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) Agenda, and advance international agreements and commitments related to gender equality and women’s empowerment, including through adequate planning and budgeting.
The United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security (UNSCR 1325) was adopted unanimously on 31 October 2000. This landmark resolution has become a powerful normative framework for advancing the crucial roles of women and girls in prevention and resolution of conflicts, peacebuilding, humanitarian response and post-conflict recovery. It reiterates the importance of the equal participation and full involvement of women in all efforts for building sustainable peace. In 2016, Timor-Leste was the third country in Southeast Asia to develop the National Action Plan for the implementation of UNSCR 1325 (NAP 1325) on Women, Peace and Security (2016-2020), which has served as an important impetus to increase and strengthen the active participation and leadership of Timorese women in peace and state building. Since 2016, UN Women has been working jointly with and providing technical support to Ministry of Interior, which is the national institution leading the coordination of NAP 1325 development and implementation, as well as line ministries including the Ministry of Justice, Secretariat of State for Equality and Inclusion (SEII), Timor-Leste Defence Forces (F-FDTL) and National Police of Timor-Leste (PNTL), in implementing their commitments to the NAP 1325. The Government of Timor-Leste, with the support of UN Women and civil society organizations, is currently developing the second NAP 1325 (2022-2025). UN Women will organize the Transformative Leadership for Gender Equality (TLGE) training workshops to strengthen institutional capacity of the NAP 1325 Structure (including the focal points from line ministries and civil society organizations at national and sub-national levels) in implementing their obligations under the NAP 1325, and increasing their capacity to promote women’s participation and representation in national security and peacebuilding, and strengthening use of gender-inclusive and transformative leadership principles and practices to address gender biases and discrimination against women and girls, and translating commitments in UNSCR 1325 on WPS to actions.
