For several decades, Cameroon was considered as a model of peace in Central Africa. However, in the last five years the Country experienced large-scale humanitarian crises. The context is particularly marked by the impact of three crises namely: Boko Haram in the Far-North; the Central African Republic crisis in the East with the influx of refugees from CAR, and the protracted crisis in the North-West and South-West regions. The conflict that erupted in the anglophone regions of Cameroon in 2016 has led to unprecedented levels of violence, increased security risks, and a serious humanitarian situation with women and girls paying a high tribute. To respond to these challenges, UN Women is bringing its unique comparative advantage and its ability to leverage its triple mandate of normative support, UN coordination, and operational activities

The creation of UN Women came about as part of the UN reform agenda, bringing together resources and mandates for greater impact. It merges and builds on the important work of four previously distinct parts of the UN system (DAW, OSAGI, INSTRAW and UNIFEM), which focused exclusively on gender equality and women's empowerment.
