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 UN Women Myanmar Country Office is based in Yangon, with offices in the capital Naypyitaw as well as in Mon, Kachin, and Rakhine States. Under its Strategic Note 2019-2021, UN Women Myanmar focuses on delivering on the following interlinked programme areas underpinned by support for intergovernmental and normative processes:
• Women’s Leadership and Gender Responsive Governance
• Women’s Economic Empowerment
• Women, Peace and Security and Gender in Humanitarian Action and Disaster Risk Reduction.
Under Gender Responsive Governance, UN Women focuses on strengthening the capacity of the Myanmar national gender machinery at Union and State/Region levels to coordinate and mainstream the implementation of the National Strategic Plan for the Advancement of Women and on linking women’s civil society organizations with the gender machinery and national and local governance processes. The programme area is mostly implemented through the Gender Responsive Governance programme which is funded by the government of Finland.
One of the outputs of the programme focuses on strengthening the existing gender machinery, capacity of sectoral agencies, state/region governments for gender mainstreaming in their policies, planning and budgeting corresponding to Myanmar Sustainable Development Plan (MSDP) and to ensure the National Strategic Plan for Advancement of Women (NSPAW) implementation.
At State, district and township levels, the Women’s Committees, which have been formed to support advancement of gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment (GEWE) and lead local implementation of NSPAW require significant support to be both activated and capacitated to pro-actively and strategically engage with existing local governance systems and processes.
The programme will support the establishing and empowerment of Women’s Committees at state and township levels as platforms for government and women organizations to engage in policy dialogue on gender equality and the empowerment of women, including planning and budgeting at the local level, ensuring that the women’s committees understand and apply governance principles of accountability, participation, transparency and participate in local governance processes in a meaningful way. The Women Committees at state and township will receive standardized training modules on governance principles, leadership, conflict resolution, negotiation, and gender.
