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. In line with its 2014-2017 Strategic Plan, preventing and eliminating violence against women and girls is one of the key strategic priorities for UN Women.
Thailand has transitioned to an upper-middle-income country where gender equality and women’s empowerment challenges largely remain in the area of accountability and implementation, particularly in institutionalization and functioning of gender mainstreaming structure and tools, such as gender statistics and gender responsive budgeting, capacity building of service providers notably the justice system actors, and fulfilment of rights of vulnerable groups of women. Persistent development challenges remain, particularly for certain groups and geographical regions including indigenous women, displaced and migrant women, women living with HIV, and women in the southern border provinces of Thailand in which violent conflicts have hindered human development leading to serious human insecurity, inequality, deprivation, and socioeconomic disparities.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development calls for a new and transformative vision with a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). While Thailand has made progress in reducing poverty overall, persistent and newly emerging development challenges can still be seen. These include multi-dimensional inequality, health, education, access to justice, climate change and natural disasters, rising urbanization, demographic shifts and the emergence of extremist groups and ideologies. Understanding how these trends can impede or enable progress towards gender equality and sustainable development is vital for effective SDG implementation Ensuring women’s equal rights, access and opportunities for participation and leadership in the economy, society and political decision-making is at the core of UN Women’s work in Thailand.
