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 "non-earmarked" support of the Swedish Embassy in Colombia to the UN Women's Strategic Country Note " Hacia una Colombia 50-50: Paz y Desarrollo para todos y todas ", part of the understanding that the gaps in the use of Women's capacities for achieving sustainable peace can be reduced by improving the level of adoption of international human rights standards of women in conflict and post-conflict situations; fostering the creation of enabling environments for the participation of women in the decision-making processes around peace, security and conflict prevention; ensuring specific and sustained funding for gender issues of peacebuilding; strengthening the mechanisms of justice, security and reparation for the protection of women's rights and the assurance of their physical and mental health; and implementing specific measures that benefit women during peacebuilding, especially during the economic recovery in post-conflict situations.

This framework, will seek to contribute to the strengthening of the political and economic empowerment of Colombian women, to guarantee their right to have a life free of violence within or outside the armed conflict, as well as their right to the truth, the justice, reparation and non-repetition, in such a way that with this support their role is enhanced in the sustainability of peace, the maintenance of democracy and the promotion of development.

The "non-earmarked" support will be fundamentally aimed at strengthening the mechanisms for the protection of women's rights in the perspective of No Repetition in transition contexts; as well as in strengthening the capacities of national and territorial authorities, women and youth for the local management of peace and development.

In this context, it will have a particular emphasis in the first place on the development of the territorial peace principle through the promotion of demonstration experiences with greater potential to accelerate and obtain early gains in the implementation of peace and the legal framework and current public policies on gender equality and protection of women's rights; second, in the promotion of budgeting with a gender perspective in public policies as the means to ensure the sustainability of the interventions that are promoted in the horizon of the consolidation and sustainability of peace, the deepening of democracy and sustainable development; and finally, an emphasis on ethnicity and work with young women and men, in a commitment to innovation, and the contribution from the Program, to cultural transformation and the promotion of masculinities that promote gender equality.
