About our work


Operating officially in China since 1998, UN Women primarily works on the following thematic impact areas: (i) governance and participation in public life, (ii) women’s economic empowerment; and (iii) ending violence against women, and (iv) global partnerships, aligned to UN Women’s SP and the Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework for China (UNSDCF) (2021-2025). Our programmes in these impact areas are further supported and catalyzed through our work on communications and advocacy, strategic partnerships and organizational effectiveness and efficiency.

As part of the UN Country Team in China, UN Women is a key partner for implementation of the UNSDCF in China, a core instrument for providing a coherent, strategic direction for UN development activities by all UN entities in support for China’s 14th Five Year Plan (2021-2025), the Outline of Women’s Development in China (2021-2030), and several other nationals policy instruments.

As a co-chair of the UN Gender Theme Group, UN Women China also leads technical and coordination support to ensure gender mainstreaming across all areas, through the interagency results group mechanism within the wider UN system, to strengthen system-wide accountability to gender equality and women’s empowerment and mobilize support towards implementation of national plans, policies and programmes.
