OUR FOCUS

Gender equality seal

Equal rights. Equal contributors.

Gender equality, centered in human rights, is both a development goal on its own and a critical factor for achieving sustainable development. It underlies one of the guiding principles of the 2030 Agenda for Development – the concept of 'leaving no one behind'.

UNDP supports partners to eliminate gender inequalities through targeted, gender-focused programmes and by working to ensure that all development efforts take into account the experiences, needs, and contributions of women. By removing structural barriers to gender equality and promoting women’s participation in the decisions that affect their lives, success in eradicating poverty and inequality, building resilience to disasters, climate change and conflict, and driving sustainable development can be achieved.

UNDP believes that the gender inequalities and discriminatory attitudes and practices that hold women back, must be confronted and eliminated, if we are to leave no one behind. In these efforts, UNDP works with governments and key UN partners, including UN Women, UNFPA and UNICEF, as well as with civil society organizations, foundations, academia and the private sector.
