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. Placing women’s rights at the centre of all its efforts, the UN Women will lead and coordinate United Nations system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world.
A key area of concern for UN Women is women’s economic empowerment (WEE) as expressed in UN Women’s Strategic Plan 2022-2025 as well as in the targets and indicators of the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 5 for gender equality and women’s empowerment and of several other SDGs relating to inclusive growth, decent work, ending poverty, and reducing inequality, and revitalizing the global partnership for sustainable development. WEE is one of UN Women’s four established thematic impact areas, and its work on WEE aligns with key global normative frameworks and international commitments, including the Beijing Platform for Action, the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women and a series of International Labour Organization (ILO) conventions on gender equality.
In August 2022, UN Women and UNDP in China signed an agreement under UNDP’s Programme “Knowledge Sharing and Capacity Building on Sustainable Procurement of UN/International Organizations“, to support the integration of Gender Responsive Procurement (GRP) as one of the key components of sustainable procurement into the Programme. Under the collaboration, UN Women has shared the knowledge on gender equality and gender responsive procurement (GRP) through several presentations to increase the understanding of both buyers and suppliers.
