Women in Policy, Peacekeeping and Leadership


UN Women in India has adopted a multi-pronged approach to advance the goal of gender equality through interventions that support the formulation of gender policies and norms at par with global standards. Our Inter-governmental Processes (IGP) programme works with the Government of India in supporting an enabling environment necessary for the fulfilment of India’s international commitments to advance the goal of gender equality.

Through the Generation Equality Forum (GEF) initiative, we provide a platform for dialogue and action on gender-based issues.

Our support of global peacekeeping efforts has ensured that women play a decisive leadership role in UN humanitarian and peacekeeping efforts.

UN Women has an important role in working across the UN in India, supporting and coordinating the UN system’s work in support of gender equality and the empowerment of women.
