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. A low GII value indicates low inequality between women and men, and vice-versa. i-icon Gender Development Index:0.723 GDI measures gender inequalities in achievement in three basic dimensions of human development: health, education, and command over economic resources.

Strategic Note Outcome Progress Note Showing data of : 2022

The legislative frameworks in LAC countries are aligned with international human rights standards on EVAWG and femicide/feminicide, and their implementation is monitored by women's civil society organizations, including youth and women facing multiple forms of discrimination.

UN Women contributed significantly to the strengthening of the capacities of government institutions for the development and strengthening of their national legal frameworks to prevent and respond to violence against women, including femicide/feminicide, and hence, reduce the rates of femicide/feminicide in the region. UN Women continued its partnership with the Gender Specialized Network of the Iberoamerican Association of Public Ministries, (AIAMP, in Spanish) which is represented by public prosecutors from 22 countries (Andorra, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Spain, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Portugal, Uruguay and Venezuela), and the Follow-up Mechanism of the Belém do Pará Convention, two institutions that work towards creating and advocating for better human rights standards across the region. The 22 countries represented in the AIAMP increased their capacities to promote, influence and implement gender-responsive legislation, particularly legislation related to violence against women and girls in the context of organized crime, and on the investigation of sexual violence, through the support of UN Women. In addition, an enabling environment for civil society organizations to monitor and provide inputs to the development of ending violence against women legal frameworks at the national and regional level was created, by a small grants mechanism that disbursed, together with UNDP, USD 240,000 to strengthen the capacities of civil society organizations.
