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 places women’s rights at the centre of all its interventions and leads and coordinates United Nations System efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action. It provides strong and coherent leadership in support of Government efforts on the empowerment of women and gender equality building an effective partnership with civil society and other relevant actors.
UN Women in Nigeria is working with the Government, other UN agencies, international non-governmental organizations, local actors to promote gender equality and empower conflict-affected women and girls and improve their access to opportunities, rights and services including justice and livelihoods in Northeast Nigeria. North-East Nigeria has experienced heightened crisis since 2009 due to the insurgency by the Non-State Armed Groups and counter-insurgency operations by the Government of Nigeria generating a grave humanitarian challenge in Nigeria. The crisis has caused displacement, disruption of livelihoods, food insecurity, increasing rates of severe acute malnutrition, and weakened basic social services and protection mechanisms severely impacting women, men, girls and boys in deferent ways.
In the context of the strong ongoing partnership between the UN and the Government of Nigeria in providing life-saving and recovery assistance to the conflict-affected population in the Northeast, UN Women Nigeria in 2018 established an operational field office in Maiduguri, Borno State-the epicentre of the Boko Haram insurgency- to oversee programme implementation across the three most affected states of Borno, Adamawa and Yobe. In addition to this targeted programming, the field office is engaged in coordination and technical support across the sectoral responses; capacity building for humanitarian workers; and undertaking various assessments and related initiatives to allow for evidence-based, gender-responsive interventions to address the evolving crisis in the North East.
