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.
The Spotlight Initiative is a partnership between the European Union (EU) and the United Nations (UN) launched in 2017, to eliminate all forms of Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG), including harmful practices. The Africa investment is at the heart of the Spotlight Initiative, which will be implemented in 8 African Union (AU ) Member States (Liberia, Nigeria, Niger, Malawi, Mali, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Uganda and Malawi)and through an African regional programme that will complement the country programmes.
Stream I of the regional programme for Africa – which has a continental scope – will focus on three pillars: (1) Legislations and policies, (5) Quality and reliable data and (6) Strengthening the women’s movement in its relations with the African Union and other regional players.
The four-year programme is implemented in two streams whereby UN Women will lead the overall coordination of Stream I that aims to promote regional response to addressing Sexual and Gender-Based Violence (SGBV), Harmful Practices (HP), and Sexual and Reproductive Health and Reproductive Rights (SRH&RR) in Africa. UN Women will also be leading the implementation of activities under Pillar 6 of Stream I in close collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).
Under stream I, UN Women, UNFPA, UNDP, and United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) are recipient UN organizations (RUNOs) that will jointly implement resources and provide technical assistance and guidance to the AU, regional Civil Society Organization ( CSOs ) and other stakeholders for the implementation of the regional joint programme. The Africa Spotlight Regional Programme will be implemented in partnership with regional and sub-regional organizations, multilateral UN sister agencies, bilateral donors and CSOs.
