Addressing gender equality and women’s empowerment is a key aspect of UNDP’s approach to achieving its core vision. Gender equality and women’s empowerment are seen as goals in their own right and are also central to the achievement of UNDPs development mandate. UNDP is guided in its work by its Gender Equality Strategy 2018-2021 which details how UNDP works towards gender equality in each of the goals and key results.
The Gender Team of the Bureau for Policy and Programme Support (BPPS) is the institutional anchor of UNDP’s work on gender equality and women’s empowerment. The Gender Team provides policy advice and technical support to all of UNDP’s Bureaus and leadership on how to mainstream gender across all areas of their work.
The Gender Equality Seal is a corporate certification process that recognizes good performance of UNDP Country Offices and Regional Hubs in meeting global standards and delivering transformational gender equality results. The Seal generates incentives for solid work on gender equality and empowers managers and Country Office team to enhance our work to support countries’ gender equality goals. The Seal is envisaged as a learning platform that helps country offices/units to establish a baseline, fine-tune strategies, identify and address gaps and challenges, document innovation and showcase the results and impacts of interventions for gender equality.
The process of certification involves four stages:
1.Online pre-screening to identify gender gaps of the office/unit;
The UNDP Regional Bureau for Asia Pacific– RBAP has commitment to increase the number of certified offices by 2022. For this the Gender Equality Seal will provide tailored support to 16 RBAP country offices prioritizing the following five pillars:
The Gender Seal RBAP support will focus in knowledge sharing and support between country offices to learn and apply good practices and promote cross learning and create platform for further expansion of the Gender Equality Seal across all the RBAP country offices.
