UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace, and security.
In line with UN Women’s Strategic Plan 2018-2021, the UN Women Egypt office is contributing to three interdependent and interconnected outcomes:
Women’s economic empowerment is central to realizing women’s rights and gender equality. Women’s economic empowerment includes women’s ability to participate equally in existing markets; their access to and control over productive resources, access to decent work, control over their own time, lives, and bodies; and increased voice, agency, and meaningful participation in economic decision-making at all levels from the household to international institutions.
Empowering women in the economy and closing gender gaps in the world of work is key to achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, particularly Goal 5, to achieve gender equality, and Goal 8, to promote full and productive employment and decent work for all; also Goal 1 on ending poverty, Goal 2 on food security, Goal 3 on ensuring health and Goal 10 on reducing inequalities.
To achieve SDS objectives and SDGs targets by 2030, and secure a sustainable society and economy, Egypt is resolved to invest in several key sectors, including some SDG accelerators identified as part of UN-supported SDGs MAPS engagement (2018-2019).
The need to secure for these multi-year investments, financing that is adapted, predictable, and resilient over the next decade is critical. At the same time, new financing flows can and must be harnessed into these investments, and solid measurements are needed to track that investments are well-timed and remained balanced between the chosen commitments.
As such, UN Women in partnership with UNDP, UNICEF, ILO, and UNCTAD will implement a two year UN Joint SDG Fund to support Egypt Integrated SDGs Financing. UN Women’s component will focus on ensuring the following results:
