UN Women is the United Nations entity dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women. A global champion for women and girls, UN Women was established to accelerate progress on meeting their needs worldwide.

UN Women supports UN Member States as they set global standards for achieving gender equality, and works with governments and civil society to design laws, policies, programmes and services needed to ensure that the standards are effectively implemented and truly benefit women and girls worldwide. It works globally to make the vision of the Sustainable Development Goals a reality for women and girls and stands behind women’s equal participation in all aspects of life, focusing on four strategic priorities:

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.

With less than 12 years to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and in ensuring that disadvantaged women and girls are not left behind, under its new 5-year plan (2018-2022), UN Women in Pakistan will support the Government of Pakistan and its partners to ensure:

  1. An enabling environment is in place to translate, monitor and report on implementation of gender equality and women’s empowerment commitments, aligned to global norms, policies and standards
  2. Gender responsive plans, policies and systems of governance are in place with institutions being more accessible to and delivering equally for women and girls
  3. An environment where women benefit from decent work, income security and socio-economic development
  4. A safe environment where women and girls can live a life free from violence in private and public spaces, and survivors are able to access quality essential services
