UN Coordination on Gender Equality
How we will make a difference
UN Women has continued to make progress in fulfilling its function of assisting and coordinating the UN System strategies, policies and actions to promote effective system-wide gender mainstreaming.
UN Women Pakistan will build on its current and past partnerships with UN Agencies with greater emphasis on joint programming and promotion of pooled-financing under the One UN Sustainable Development Framework (2018-2022) comprised of 10 Outcome areas. Towards this, UN Women Pakistan will be the lead agency for Outcome 8 on ‘Gender Equality and Dignity’, and will provide technical support and guide the remaining 9 Outcome groups on integrating gender within their activities.
UN Women Pakistan will continue its support to the UN Country Team and sister UN Agencies to coordinate and promote joint advocacy efforts and joint programmes that promote gender equality and women’s empowerment.
UN Women Pakistan will guide planning and monitoring, and enhance accountability of the UN’s work on gender equality and women’s empowerment through UN inter-agency and humanitarian groups.
UN Women Pakistan will also leverage on provincial coordination mechanisms to support system-wide accountability on gender equality and women’s empowerment.
UN Women Pakistan will continue its role as a permanent co-chair of the Inter-Agency Gender and Development Group (INGAD) along with a rotating co-chair. Under this forum, UN Women Pakistan will facilitate strategic dialogue and joint advocacy on issues related to gender equality and women’s empowerment in the development and humanitarian sectors, and interagency coordination in Pakistan.
