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.

The UN Women MCO Caribbean covers 22 countries and territories in the English and Dutch speaking Caribbean, which are part of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM). Strides towards gender equality in the countries covered by the MCO have resulted in gains for women and girls in the Caribbean, relating primarily to high education rates and increases in employment rates. However critical gaps remain.

All Caribbean countries have committed to the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. In 2016, eighteen Dutch and English-speaking countries of the region and Overseas Territories along with six UN Country Teams (UNCTs) on which the MCO sits, namely Barbados & the OECS, Belize, Guyana, Jamaica, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago signed onto the United Nations Multi-Country Sustainable Development Framework (UN MSDF). The MSDF defines how the UN and CARICOM member states will jointly achieve the SDG and Development Results for the period 2017-2021. The MSDF is anchored in the SDGs and is fully mapped and aligned with other significant development frameworks such as the SIDS Accelerated Modalities of Action (SAMOA) Pathway and the CARICOM Strategic Plan 2015-2019. The MSDF aims to support Member States through partnerships, with the necessary tools and resources to achieve national and regional development priorities in line with the SDGs.  To this end, the MSDF has four (4) strategic priority areas, across which gender is systematically mainstreamed and integrated:

  • An inclusive, equitable, and prosperous Caribbean;
  • A healthy Caribbean;
  • A cohesive, safe, and just Caribbean;
  • A sustainable and resilient Caribbean.

The MCO has developed very strong knowledge products and tools over the tenure of the last strategic note, which contributed directly to the MCOs reputation as the knowledge broker on gender equality and women’s empowerment in the Caribbean. The tools and products tie the normative framework to clear actions governments and civil society can take to implement more gender equitable programming and policies. Distribution, publicity and promotion of these products and tools will be strengthened. The MCO’s 2018 -2021 programme strategy will highlight the importance of continuing to develop these tools and products and outline a clear strategy for ensuring the accessibility and promotion of these tools to key actors.
