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

People’s lives in China are improved further as headway is made in ensuring access to childcare, education, healthcare services, elderly care, housing, and social assistance, and more people in China, including left-behind groups, benefit from equitable and public services and social protection systems as well as accelerated efforts to reduce gender inequality and other forms of social inequality throughout the life-course.

In 2022, some progress has been made in gender responsive governance through the collective efforts led by UN Women and its strategic partners, through joint advocacy, strengthened evidence base for policy making, provision of technical support for policy making and strengthened institutional mechanism for capacity development, and promotion of women’s leadership and participation. This progress has contributed to China’s UNSDCF Outcome 2 and the office’s draft SN Outcome 2: People’s lives in China are improved further as headway is made in ensuring access to childcare, education, healthcare services, elderly care, housing, and social assistance, and more people in China, including left-behind groups, benefit from equitable public services and social protection systems as well as accelerated efforts to reduce gender inequality and other forms of social inequality throughout the life-course. With technical and financial support under UN Women’s China Gender Fund (CGF) initiative, Dehong Municipality Communist Party (CPC) and Dehong County Government have jointly issued a red title Order for the 2021 election, emphasizing women's political participation and leadership and stipulating that the proportion of women in three important leadership positions of two village committees should reach 30 per cent. This is the first policy in Yunnan that has stipulate the proportion of women. This will ensure women especially minority women’s political participation in rural area. The amended Law on the Protection of Women's Rights and Interests of People’s Republic of China (the Law) was adopted in October 2022 and has come into effect on 1 January, 2023. The amended law further strengthens the legal and policy basis for Chinese women’s rights to fully participate in political, social and economic activities. Leveraging the UNGTG mechanism, UN Women led the coordination for the development of common messages and feedback from all interested UN agencies and prepared a consolidated a report of UN system’s review recommendation and inputs on the draft law, aligned to the international norms and standards. UN Women and UNICEF jointly organized closed on line meeting with the Legislative Affairs Commission (LAC) with participation of the ILO and UNFPA, and written feedback from the FAO IFAD, and WFP. The technical inputs received were well received and some recommendations were mostly incorporated into the finalization of the law amendment, including the need to pay special attention to vulnerable groups of women, including the elderly women and women living with disabilities, the roles and responsibilities of different government and social stakeholders’ role in anti-trafficking of women, and accountability of government on women’s rights violation cases, etc. In 2022, with the support provided from UN Women’s CGF grant-making support, a dedicated UN Women Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment and CEDAW Training Center (GEWE and CEDAW) has been established in Zhejiang Women Carders School, China. The training center aims to strengthen national partners capacity especially CSOs and individuals’ capacity on application of CEDAW normative framework in policy making and programming, with a specific focus on supporting the CSO on CEDAW based policy advocacy through periodic training organized by the training center. By using the UN Women developed standard curriculum on gender equality and CEDAW, a Training of Trainers (TOT) was conducted for 31 trainers in the first round. The trainers will serve as resource persons to roll out subsequent trainings for interested organizations and persons. A new research study Enhancing “Her” Power: A Survey of Women’s Career Development in the Artificial Intelligence Industry and Countermeasures has been finalized by Jiangsu AI Association with grant making support from UN Women’s China Gender Funds initiative. The research provides important insights to the gender gaps in policy and programming in the field of AI, and recommendations for strengthening gender responsive governance of the AI sector. Based on the study, UN women has partnered with the Institute for Interdisciplinary Information Core Technology (the same team of Tsinghua) to develop a policy brief on the issue and will organize a policy dialogue on how to mainstream gender equality in AI sector in China in 2023.
