Antecedentes

The UN Women Regional Office for Arab States (ROAS) exercises UN Women functions at a regional level and in support of UN Women’s engagement in 17 countries across the region. Drawing from UN Women’s triple mandate, ROAS promotes the realization of gender equality and the empowerment of women through active engagement in all five outcome areas of the UN Women Global Strategic Plan (2018-2021). ROAS engages with several regional and global intergovernmental processes in ensuring gender equality is an integral part of norms and standards and promotes women’s full participation and leadership in policy processes and gender-responsive governance systems, including gender statistics.  ROAS aims to advance supportive regulatory frameworks for promoting decent work and enterprise development, including for women migrant workers; and promotes private sector engagement and Women’s Empowerment Principles. Focusing on prevention and response as the main areas, ROAS works to eliminate violence against women. ROAS’s programming takes a gender-responsive approach to the prevention of violent extremism and supports the integration of gender considerations into humanitarian action.
