UN Women Indonesia Newsletter Vol. 2
This is the second edition of UN Women Indonesia’s newsletter, capturing a series of initiatives during Q4 2020 - Q1 2021 and in support of International Women’s Day.
During this time, UN Women has worked closely with the Government of Indonesia to ensure that provision of services for women subjected to violence does not stop during the pandemic. We have collaborated with the private sector for data collection and analysis on the gendered impact of COVID-19 to inform policy decision makers and in mobilising the business sector on advancing gender equality. We have listened to and worked with the civil society organizations to empower women affected by COVID-19. These efforts reflect the importance of multisectoral collaboration as the key enabler to overcome socioeconomic challenges and to ensure that no one is left behind in Indonesia’s COVID-19 response and recovery.
Meanwhile, we have strengthened our partnership with ASEAN on gender mainstreaming, gender responsive data analysis and on promoting the Women, Peace and Security agenda, with generous support from the Government of Canada and other partners.
