UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations (UN), 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. Placing women’s rights at the centre of all its efforts, the UN Women leads and coordinates UN system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world.

The UN Women implements a regional project titled Strengthening Human Rights and Gender Equality through Climate Change Action and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) (hereinafter called the EmPower project). The project is implemented in partnership with the UN Environment and the funding from the Swedish International Development Agency.
The Project aims to contribute to addressing key drivers of gender-based vulnerabilities through engendering climate change and DRR actions in Asia and the Pacific. The Project will work in five output areas:
