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 Burundi's Strategic Note 2019-2023 aligns with UN Women's Global Strategic Plan 2018-2021, the National Development Plan 2018-2027, the National Gender Policy (NGP) and UNSC Resolution 1325 action plans for 2017-2021, UNDAF (2019-2023) and the United Nations Resilience Framework. It captures the triple mandate of UN WOMEN (Normative, Coordination and Programmatic) aimed at supporting government and partners to achieve lasting results for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women, building on its comparative advantages.
The strategic note prioritizes three outcomes: i) An environment for the implementation of WPS commitment is enabled in Burundi through the participation and influence of key governmental and non-governmental stakeholders’t; ii Women, including those in refugees/ IDPS camps and other vulnerable situations, experience enhanced safety, security, physical and mental health, and their human rights respected in conformity with ratified regional and international instruments’; iii) Women and girls participate in and benefit from socio-economic recovery opportunities in the context of peace and resilience-building’.
Hence, UN Women Burundi is structured in three main components: (1) Women Leadership & Participation -Peace and Security (WPS); (2) End of Violence Against Women and Girls/Human Rights and (3) Women Economic Empowerment (WEE).
