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’s India Country Office works towards promoting women’s role in peace building, intergovernmental processes, UN interagency coordination. The country is affected by various types of conflicts which impact differently on women, girls, boys and men. In keeping with this understanding there is a need to design programmes which are not only conflict and gender sensitive but which also address women’s various roles in peace building through targeted interventions.
As the UN agency with the mandate to work on gender equality, UN Women is responsible for leading and coordinating United Nations system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world and at the country level. UN Women is also expected to provide strong and coherent leadership in support of countries’ priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society, the nodal government agency, private sector and other relevant actors.
The Intergovernmental Processes & Inter-Agency Coordination in UN Women India CO plays a central role to deliver on UN Women’s normative support functions and strengthens linkages between normative work and operational activities. It contributes to the Entity’s support for the development and strengthening of a comprehensive set of global norms, policies and standards on gender equality and women’s empowerment that is dynamic, responds to new and emerging issues, challenges and opportunities and is applied through action by Governments and other stakeholders at all levels. The Unit also has special responsibility for the coordination of substantive servicing of intergovernmental and expert bodies as mandated in relevant legislative documents.
The year 2020 marks a confluence of anniversaries that come at a crucial and challenging time for multilateralism and women’s human rights. As the global community marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Fourth World Conference on Women and adoption of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action (BPfA, 1995), (Beijing + 25), 40th anniversary of the Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), 20 years since the ground-breaking UN Security Council resolution 1325 on Women and Peace and Security, 10 years anniversary of UN Women, and five years of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (2030 Agenda) and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the moment is right to achieve irreversible and measurable progress towards this universal commitment to all women and girls, everywhere. At this time, equal enjoyment of the human rights of women and girls, in all their diversities, and in particular, those from marginalised communities, is at a greater risk given the additional repercussions of COVID-19. The time for transformative action is now!
To mark the occasion and build momentum for gender equality and women’s rights, UN Women will to take forward the Global Gender Equality Forum – Generation Equality, which will be a collective mobilisation moment, to galvanize all stakeholders to implement actions that remove the most egregious barriers to gender equality. The Forum will bring together civil society and the women and young people of the world, gender equality advocates from all walks of life, in a global public conversation on the urgent actions that need to be taken for the realisation of gender equality.

In July 2010, the United Nations General Assembly created UN Women, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. The creation of UN Women came about as part of the UN reform agenda, bringing together resources and mandates for greater impact. It merges and builds on the important work of four previously distinct parts of the UN system (DAW, OSAGI, INSTRAW and UNIFEM), which focused exclusively on gender equality and women’s empowerment.
