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.
The Policy, Programme and Intergovernmental Division (PPID) sets the programmatic standards, assures the quality of programme design, and provides guidance to country level programme work of UN Women, as well as supporting the coordination role of UN Women at regional and country level. The division has global policy expertise, manages Global Trust Funds, and Global Programmes, and provides technical capacity to countries on request, including a humanitarian response capacity.
The UN Women Strategic Plan (2022-2025) is based on key findings from an extensive consultative process and draws from the analysis of lessons learned and recommendations from evaluations, audits, and other assessments, including those from the 25-year review and appraisal of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action. Given the interconnected nature of global challenges, UN Women will focus on integrated approaches with seven systemic outcomes to address the root causes of inequality and affect broader systems change, across its four thematic focus areas: 1) governance and participation in public life; 2) women’s economic empowerment; 3) ending violence against women and girls; and 4) women, peace and security, humanitarian action, and disaster risk reduction.
The Research and Data Section (R&D) produces policy relevant research and analysis, gender data and statistics to inform programme development and implementation, policy-making, and advocacy and accountability for UN Women to become a strong, knowledge-based organization in line with UN Women’s Strategic Plan 2022-2025. R&D leads research and data analysis on policy-relevant gender equality issues, including the publication of UN Women’s flagship reports Progress of the World’s Women, World Survey on the Role of Women in Development, State of Gender Data, Gender Indices, and series publications (Discussion Papers and Policy Briefs) in UN Women’s priority areas. R&D leads monitoring of the SDGs from a gender perspective and produces the annual Gender Snapshot Report and the Spotlight on the SDGs series. By implementing its signature intervention on Gender Statistics and Data “Making Every Women and Girl Count II”, R&D leads normative and technical work to improve the quality, availability and use of gender statistics at the national, regional and global level.
