UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination and violence 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 China Office in Beijing supports and carries out work on (i) enhancing women's economic empowerment; (ii) ending violence against women; and (iii) innovative work to address gender issues in China. In addition to the above, UN Women also actively participates and contributes to various UN inter-agency processes and collaborates with UN organizations around specific programme areas.
In order to enhance women’s economic empowerment in China and work towards rural women’s poverty alleviation in the face of climate change, UN Women China has been working on addressing women’s vulnerabilities to climate change and empowering them to lead sustainable development efforts. Informed by findings from the 2016 UN Women China and Ministry of Environmental Protection research study entitled Gender Dimensions of Vulnerability to Climate Change in China, which presents evidence that women farmers are most vulnerable to negative climate change impacts, UN Women China is implementing a comprehensive programme entitled Strengthening Qinghai Women Farmers’ Income Security and Resilience in a Changing Climate to respond to the key specific challenges and harness the current global and national momentum and support for women farmers’ poverty reduction in the face of climate change.
The UN Women Project on strengthening Qinghai women farmers’ income security and resilience to climate change has started since 2018. Till date, the project has directly benefited over 55,000 women farmers and attracted 600,000 media attention through UN Women’s official websites. At the time of scaling up the project into the second phase, expansion of project geographic locations and project content would be designed into the new project documents. Provinces such as Hu’nan would be involved, and components on gender and environment would be added.

Under the guidance and supervision of the Gender and Climate Change programme manager of UN Women China, the Gender and Climate Change consultant provides high quality and strategic technical support to identify priority areas, undertake research and consultation, and develop UN Women programme document to scale-up current project.
