Placing the advancement of women’s rights at the centre of our work, UN Women Indonesia focuses on:
UN Women Indonesia works with a range of stakeholders to increase awareness of the causes and consequences of violence against women, while also building the capacity of partners to prevent and respond to this violence. We advocate for changing norms and behaviour as a prevention strategy to tackle violence against women. more
Safe and Fair Migration: We work to promote gender responsive labour migration policies and increase the capacity of service providers to respond to violence experienced by women migrant workers. We provide skills training to migrant women on safe and fair migration, and produce data to improve information and access assistance for migrant women.
Safe Cities: We develop, implement, and evaluate practical tools, policies, and comprehensive approaches to tackle violence against women and girls in public spaces. This work includes, but is not limited to, identifying relevant issues and interventions through data collection, advocating for gender aware policy in urban planning, and strengthening intervention and prevention responses to violence against women.
UN Women Indonesia supports the development of stronger legislative frameworks that protect women’s rights and make the government more accountable to women.
We also support efforts to ensure that the HIV response in Indonesia addresses women and girls’ specific needs through capacity building of women’s groups and policy advocacy. more
