Within the framework of the United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (2021-2025), UN Women’s programming in Timor-Leste focuses on Women’s Economic Empowerment, Ending Violence against Women and Girls (EVAWG), advancing the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) agenda and supporting implementation of Normative commitments (e.g. CEDAW, Beijing Platform for Action, SDGs), mainstreaming gender across areas to achieve these results.
