i-icon World Bank Income Classification:Low Income The World Bank classifies economies for analytical purposes into four income groups: low, lower-middle, upper-middle, and high income. For this purpose it uses gross national income (GNI) per capita data in U.S. dollars, converted from local currency using the World Bank Atlas method, which is applied to smooth exchange rate fluctuations. i-icon Least Developed Country:Yes Since 1971, the United Nations has recognized LDCs as a category of States that are deemed highly disadvantaged in their development process, for structural, historical and also geographical reasons. Three criteria are used: per capita income, human assets, and economic vulnerability. i-icon Gender Inequality Index:0.575 GII is a composite metric of gender inequality using three dimensions: reproductive health, empowerment and the labour market.

About our work

ECA RO Banner Image

UN Women has offices in 12 countries and territories in the Europe and Central Asia (ECA) region across three subregions (Western Balkans and Turkey, Eastern Europe and South Caucasus, and Central Asia)[1]. The office also serves as a member of UN Country Teams in five countries where it is a Non-Resident Agency (NRA)[2].

UN Women’s Regional Office for Europe and Central Asia’s regional strategy and programming aims to address the root causes of inequality across all thematic areas:

  • Governance and participation in public life
  • Women’s economic empowerment
  • Ending violence against women and girls
  • Women, peace and security, humanitarian action, disaster risk reduction

Our work focuses on four transformative areas of change. These four areas align fully with the Strategic Plan thematic areas and seven cross-cutting outcomes and UN Women’s commitments and priorities:

  • Advancing implementation and financing of evidence-based normative frameworks and policies
  • Ensuring that women and girls fully and equally participate in leadership and decision-making processes and benefit from gender-responsive governance
  • Ensuring that women and girls live a life free from all forms of discrimination, violence and harmful social norms
  • Enabling the UN system to demonstrate greater accountability to advance progress on gender equality and women’s empowerment

A strong Leave No One Behind and intersectional approach is applied, particularly in regional programming. Priorities are selected based on UN Women’s comparative strengths and advantages by partners during consultation process.
