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.
UN Women Haiti country program 2018-2021 declines global priorities through a programming strategy articulated around the following priorities: a) Women’s economic empowerment with a focus on increased participation and leadership in the development of climate-resilient agriculture, water, renewable energy and service markets and equal access to resources and services; b) Strengthening women and girls participation in the design and delivery of gender-responsive risk reduction strategies in a view to strengthening resilience and recovery of communities; c) Reduction of the violence faced by women in electoral contexts in a view to fostering women’s leadership and political participation; d) Strengthening women and girls access to the justice system and quality, gender-sensitive legal services.
Throughout its interventions, UN Women ensure linkages are built between operational components and its normative and coordination mandates. Programming data and analysis therefore also feed sectorial advocacy processes, institutional and legal reform processes in order to address the identified structural barriers to gender equality and women’s empowerment.
