UN Women also coordinates and promotes the UN system’s work in advancing gender equality, and in all deliberations and agreements linked to the 2030 Agenda. The entity works to position gender equality as fundamental to the Sustainable Development Goals, and a more inclusive world.
UN Women, as part of the United Nations in Timor-Leste, contributes to the Government’s efforts to advance gender equality and the empowerment of women, as outlined in its Strategic Development Plan 2011-2030, its Sustainable Development Goals Roadmap, and in support of its international human rights and gender equality obligations. 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. In support of its coordination mandate, UN Women Country Office Co-Chairs the UN Inter-agency Governance Results Group (with UNDP), Co-Chairs Gender Theme Group and the Co-Chairs the Multi-stakeholder Gender Coordination Group with the State Secretariat for Equality and Inclusion.
The Women, Peace and Security (WPS) Programme is focused to enhance the leadership and decision-making capacities of diverse groups of women (including youth and women and girls with disabilities) toward more gender-responsive conflict prevention and peacebuilding processes to convene multi-stakeholder discussions on mediation at national and local levels and strengthening implementation and capacity of the four pillars of the WPS Agenda, with specific attention to Participation (Pillar I) and Prevention (Pillar II), more specifically to provide technical support to develop the second phase of National Action Plan 1325 on Women, Peace and Security (NAP 1325). The WPS outcomes contributes to Sustainable Development Goal 5, 11 and 16; Timor-Leste Strategic Development Plan 2015-2030; and

The year 2021 represents an exclusive opportunity to show case the women’s leadership appeal in the time of COVID-19 and increase the participation of women in peace processes as part of Government commitment to the NAP 1325 and to mobilize global action and for Timor-Leste to accelerate progress where it is most needed. This requires a collective effort, across generations and targets to achieve gender equality for all.
UN Women proposes to upscale the 10 years of experience with the Ministry of Interior on integrating gender into the community conflict resolution in Timor-Leste and focus its efforts around 4 key, inter-related elements critical to advancing human rights’ centered mediation, with special attention to the experiences and inclusion of women, youth, persons with disabilities, and members of the LGBTI community.
To raise visibility of the value and contributions of women’s participation in negotiation and mediation processes contribute to NAP 1325 participation pillar.
