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.
In Tunisia, UN Women is currently focusing on four Impact Areas:
1. Women lead, participate in and benefit equally from governance systems;
2. Women have income security, decent work, and economic autonomy;
3. Women and girls contribute and have greater influence in building sustainable peace and resilience, and benefit equally from the prevention of natural disasters and conflicts and from humanitarian action;
4. A comprehensive and dynamic set of global norms, policies, and standards on gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls is strengthened and implemented.
Since the 2011 revolution, UN Women Tunisia has supported the integration of equality provisions in the 2014 constitution and parity conditions in electoral laws. These efforts were consolidated during this post-revolution process by the revision of different discriminatory laws, the establishment of a high-level gender issues mechanisms as the “Conseil des Pairs”, the adoption of the National Action Plan on 1325 and the integration of full parity into local elections law. In addition to this, the office is working to support the Tunisian Government in its response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Tunisian Government has responded to the COVID-19 outbreak with several immediate measures. It has implemented an emergency plan by injecting liquidity to ease cash flow pressures on enterprises, funding lines to compensate for lost wages due to technical unemployment, alleviation of financial and tax burdens, and one-off cash transfers to households working in the in-formal sector, who are not covered by any social assistance program and who are vulnerable to shocks. Despite all these efforts, it is often difficult to identify and reach these households and vulnerable groups of society, which are in a precarious situation from the onset and risk to be left behind. It is within this framework that UN Women seeks to ensure the gender-sensitivity of the socio-economic response and stimulus packages in Tunisia by gathering evidence and sharing it with the Tunisian public and authorities. One avenue for this work is a joint program between UNWOMEN, UNDP, UN-HABITAT, and WPF on “Strengthening social protection and economic relief systems for vulnerable and marginalized segments of the population as a response to COVID-19 in Tunisia,” where UN Women is responsible for 2 results: 1. Gender-responsive macro-economic policy solutions integrated into the legal normative frame-works and government socio-economic, financial and fiscal measures 2. Support the collection and analysis of sex-and age-disaggregated data in order to accurately identify the differential impact of the outbreak on the population.
UN Women Libya has strengthened its programme presence in Libya, responding to the complex governance, humanitarian, development, and security challenges through its triple mandate. UN Women’s Libya’s premise is that peacebuilding efforts, including political dialogues, conflict resolution, and humanitarian efforts will be more effective and have higher chances of success if they are inclusive, responding to gendered experiences, needs, capacities, and interests the Libyan women across their diversities, this includes supporting women’s participation in peace processes at all levels. In addition, the programme is working to strengthen women’s political participation, ensure gender-responsive economic recovery, coordinate gender mainstreaming within the UNCT in Libya, integrate women’s needs into the current humanitarian response, and ensure their full participation in the humanitarian consultations and processes. The programme is aligned with the UN Strategic Framework for Libya 2019 - 2020, UN Women Global Strategic Plan (2018-2022) as well as the international conventions on women and human rights such as the Convention on Ending all forms of Discrimination Against Women and the Beijing Platform for Action.
