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.
Thailand has transitioned to an upper-middle-income country where gender equality and women’s empowerment challenges largely remain in the area of accountability and implementation, particularly in institutionalization and functioning of gender mainstreaming structure and tools, such as gender statistics and gender responsive budgeting, capacity building of service providers notably the justice system actors, and fulfilment of rights of vulnerable groups of women. Persistent development challenges remain, particularly for certain groups and geographical regions including rural women, displaced and migrant women, and women in the southern border provinces of Thailand in which violent conflicts have hindered human development leading to serious human insecurity, inequality, deprivation, and socioeconomic disparities.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development calls for a new and transformative vision with a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). While Thailand has made progress in reducing poverty overall, persistent and newly emerging development challenges can still be seen. These include multi-dimensional inequality, health, education, access to justice, climate change and natural disasters, rising urbanization, demographic shifts and the emergence of extremist groups and ideologies. Understanding how these trends can impede or enable progress towards gender equality and sustainable development is vital for effective SDG implementation.
Ensuring women’s equal rights, access and opportunities for participation and leadership in the economy, society and political decision-making is at the core of UN Women’s work in Thailand. While there has been much progress in advancing gender equality, such progress is unevenly experienced by women who are marginalized because of a complex interplay of factors. UN Women Thailand works in most if not all of UN Women strategic areas but focuses its strategic priorities in three out of the five outcomes. The first outcome intends to strengthen and implement a comprehensive and dynamic set of global norms, policies and standards on gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls. This allows UN Women to link its work with other outcome areas such as women’s leadership and political participation, gender-responsive social protection and women, peace and security. The second outcome ensures that all women and girls including marginalized groups such as migrant workers live a life free from all forms of violence. The third outcome anticipates the expansion of the work in the areas of women’s economic empowerment and private sector engagement for implementing the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs).
Under its Women, Peace and Security (WPS) Portfolio, UN Women Thailand implements two regional programmes. The Empowering women for sustainable peace: preventing violence and promoting social cohesion in ASEAN Countries/Region Programme aims to advance and strengthen the WPS agenda in ASEAN, including preventing violence against women and promoting social cohesion in the region. It promotes women’s participation in conflict prevention, resolution and recovery; and supports ASEAN to become a knowledge hub on WPS and lead the advancement of the WPS agenda in the region. The “PEACEBUILDING IN A PANDEMIC: Empowering Women to Promote Social Cohesion and Prevent Terrorism and Violent Extremism in the Context of COVID-19 in South and Southeast Asia” Programme is to empower women in South and Southeast Asia to build resilient and peaceful communities and prevent extremist violence as well as to mitigate the impact of COVID-19. UN Women Thailand.
